- I felt we were supposed to be different and I think every family is supposed to be different.
- Our family is not just for us
- Dan Miller – 48days To The Work You Love Podcast – LINK
- Life doesn’t just have to be the way we saw it.
- I could build a life around my family rather than just existing in the same template life everyone else had.
- Look at every action and ask the question, “Why do we do this?” – Church, friends etc.
- Obligation is not a reason to do something
- We decided to do things we wanted to do.
- Do The Work – Steven Pressfield
- Started as a web site that would serve as accountability for goals
- Weekend of coolness and skullduggery
- You don’t have to do everything that our culture is doing.
- Coffee is something I love. It’s not an addiction but I appreciate it. Once you’ve had a taste for something great you can’t dumb down your taste. I want our site to be great. I want it to be something that changes the way people think, that opens up possibilities.
- I want us to be people that other people want to be around.
- A scene from Jaws inspires Josh to take the right actions in front of his kids.
- There needs to be underground love, that’s deeper.
