Ski-Racing – a Bird’s Eye View

Recently, at Canyons Resort in Utah, they hosted ski-racing and a snowboard-cross race. It was considered a World Cup-class course and the crashes were evidence of its difficulty. I was lucky enough to have press access, meet many of the racers, and actually “run” the course a couple of times. This video of ski-racing was taken with my GoPro held by my chest-mount. It gives a great sense of what it is like to ski or ride such a course. But, imagine it at double the speed.

There’s No Such Thing As Quality Time

I keep learning this great lesson. It’s something I know, but seem to have to experience repeatedly for it to sink into my stubborn head. With kids, there’s no such thing as quality time, only quantity time.

Some people actually believe they can schedule quality time with their kids—moments when their kids will open up, reveal what’s really going on, and share. They want to schedule this time the way they schedule a business lunch. But, kids don’t work on these kinds of schedules. They open up when they’re good and ready, and it’s usually when you least expect it. This happened one weekend a couple of years ago with my younger son. read more
