Now

A "Now" Page is an idea I came across in Derek Sivers' great book Your Music and People. I update this every month or so with what I'm working on right now. I write it from the perspective of what I would share with you if I hadn't seen you in a year or so.

Family

  • The kids are finishing up basketball season with the Boys & Girls Club. It's their first season playing organized basketball and they're having fun. I'm the coach of my daughter's team. 

  • The Little League season starts on March 5th. I'm coaching my son's Majors team and my daughter's AA team. If you need me b/w now and the end of May, you can find me at the baseball fields! 

  • We started watching The Good Place, which is created by Michael Schur, who also co-created Brooklyn 99, which is a family favorite.  

  • Melissa is still standing after being the assistant principal for a middle school during a worldwide pandemic. I am proud to be her husband! 

Business

  • I'm sending out a Daily Dispatch email on weekdays where I share personal development ideas to help readers thrive. I've been doing it now for about a year and a half, and I love how it forces my creative juices to flow daily.

  • I continue to coach several clients around personal development and entrepreneurship.

  • I'm working with a mentor coach on personal development and the continued enhancement of my coaching skills.

  • I signed up for a self-paced program to become a certified Personal Trainer through NASM. I envision teaching group HIIT classes and adding the physical fitness knowledge to my personal development coaching to give clients a more holistic approach to well-being.  

Good Reads

  • I'm reading On Writing by Stephen KIng. It's a memoir about parts of his life and his thoughts on writing.  

  • I am reading How to Be Perfect by Michael Schur. It's a fun, interesting overview of the history of Ethics. He discusses Aristotle, Utilitarianism, and many other Etchics topics in a funny and interesting way. It's cool to read the book while watching his show The Good Place, as they go hand-in-hand. 

  • I read Trevor Noah's memoir Born a Crime. I'm not a regular watcher of The Daily Show, but I might become one after reading Noah's story. He talks about growing up in South Africa during/after apartheid and many trials of living in poverty and living with abuse.   

Miscelaneous

  • I'm slowly working on a Personal Trainer certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). I really admire what is being created over at Foghorn Fitness, and I want to give myself the option of being able to create something similar, or add physical fitness training to my personal development training. 

  • "Find something you love doing so much you'd do it for free. Get so good at it that people pay you a lot of money for it." This quote by Jon Acuff resonated with me. My wheels are spinning about ways in which I can continue to pursue my passions and turn them into streams of income.
