COT

A man without AMBITION is like a bird without wings.

I encouraged everyone to create an ambitious goal for the new year beyond what their normal goals may be.  The following advice was then read.

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.  They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.

Take advantage of the Ball of Man and become a HIM.

CIRCLE OF TRUST:  Counterama to 21, Namerama without video (thanks Whittler and Ringwald), Announcearama about upcoming Qs and the Ball Of Man.
BALL OF MAN: Huddled up and closed it out.


Moleskin

Ringwald’s countdowns almost added up to the amount of SSHs we did.  

Some chatter about looking pretty while skipping, not sure that it really made any of us pretty.

I was super proud of everyone running really hard, there were a lot of winded PAX.
