Here's What's GOing On
On the Road Again
Travel is one of the great joys of life. As luck would have it, we have teams in a few international destinations, and I was due for a visit. Most interesting were Prague and Hyderabad. Given the travel time to India is about 22 hours, I stopped over in Hong Kong for the weekend. Incredible city - you cannot fathom the scale until you are there.
The Mind cannot live without the body
The body is a wonderful playground. I find it the best of places to experiment with self-improvement since so much is under your control. Most recently, I've been playing with a plant based diet in order to improve energy, sleep and performance. So far, results have been very positive. I plan to continue eating this way.
A rolling stone
I've been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) off and on since 1996. If you don't know BJJ, you'll recognize it from the UFC. Originating in Japan, advanced in Brazil, it's the most effective ground-fighting art I know. I stopped a few years back due to a neck injury, but I recently returned to the mat. When you take a break, you realize you miss the family as much as the training.
The end of the year is always a time of reflection. I'm a believer in spending your days wisely, as they become your life. To that end, I'd like to spend more time in nature and with the kids. After that, developing my writing habit while finding more time to program would be a fantastic start of the new year.
