There’s nothing quite like overcoming a challenge, and the empowering rewards that follow; wisdom, confidence, humility, patience. It’s a journey that begins with an aspiration or curiosity, and ends with an accomplishment, however close to or different from the original goal it may be. It’s hard to fail, even if the objective is never reached.
I love a good challenge, and each one allows me to envision a greater goal and potential for the next. Building a website, restoring a motorcycle, cultivating a marriage. The older I get the more I try to come at everything from that angle. Sometimes the challenges are chosen for me, a flat tire, which can be just as rewarding if approached with the right mindset.
So who am I? I’m just a guy facing each challenge head-on. It doesn’t always turn out the way I hoped or expected, but that’s ok.
