This past few days I’ve been sick as a junk yard dog with rabies. Fortunately it’s just a bad case of the flu.
I haven’t been up to doing my normal stuff… training, working, writing, the uge.

I’ve been able to spend some extra time with my 8 month old daughter Zoe, who is also sick.
And stepping back from my daily routine has allowed me to re-examine my life, goals, business, values, and priorities. Sometimes the warrior in us needs to revert to his dwelling so he can sharpen his sword before heading back out into the battle field.

Now I’m gonna go get some rest (=
