- Man that title is
putting it mildly...
- Boy editing the
beginning of that made me cryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. So
much to say really. Too much to say. This is probably
the last time the dark and light sides of The Journey
will seem balanced. Too much Star Wars on my mind but
I'm not sure how else to describe it -
- 2000-2009 was
chaos unmatched. 2010-2019 wasn't any less chaotic but
it had a foundation of family that didn't exist in the
first decade of The Journey. So appreciative of that
foundation I seemingly floated these last 10 years
when in fact? It was pretty nuts. Hell, even the way
the end of 2019 went was unbelievably dramatic (and
sadly, mostly locked right about now) - but with a
great marriage and awesome kids? Float, down,
- I think my
biggest takeaway watching this is the ambition is
still so abundant. You have this fear that settling
down and having a family is suddenly going to take
away that ambition and honestly it reignited it.
GolfKon lead to CRAZINESS and that all came from
Talya getting pregnant. And I really am me in every
situation: I think it and then DO IT. If you
showed these last 10 years to me in 2009, my jaw would
drop. I'd never built ANYTHING. I mean I put some
drywall up in the guest house but dude - GolfKon?
FACKINHELL. And the the Delorean business and... wild.
Like absolutely a complete reinvention of who I was
and if you had asked me in 2009, I would've felt
like I had done everything I was capable of.
If that ain't a life lesson, I don't know what
- So I end this
set of 1,000 entries with gratitude and amazement and
look forward to refocusing on The Journey a bit as the
20 year mark sounds really impressive and with the
right amount of pushing I think I could find an income
stream there. It would take the pressure off that
GODDAMN Delorean having to run and it might
protect me from future extortion attempts.
- Because one thing
has remained true throughout: if you're successful?
The bad guys will find you. It's part of success. Just
prepare and as always:
TELL THE FUCKING TRUTH. Even when
people threaten to hurt you. The truth, always, wins.
You learned that this year more than ever.
- BRING ON THE 20s!!
