Between working on my friend’s deck and the weather I didn’t get to golf this entire last week! Instead, I shot pool four different nights this week, which is even more odd since we didn’t have league this week because it fell on the 4th.
After working on the deck most of the day Monday and Michele working that night I met one of my teammates at Your place to practice. Friday night I played at my cousins house, Saturday night I met my friend Lew at Your Place and after getting rained out early yesterday I went back to your place for dinner and played some more. We have a double header this Tuesday night so hopefully all of this practice will pay off.
For July 4th I helped out with Operation Purple Heart Truck. We have the truck parked at Busch Gardens for the whole week for their Military Appreciation Week but it was hard to get any volunteers to help on that day so I took all three shifts myself. From 10:00 am until 10:00 pm I was visiting with people and showing off the truck. It was really cool to meet so many people from so many different places and backgrounds. The only negative was seeing how many young people know nothing about the Vietnam War, never heard of the battle of Hamburger Hill and don’t even know what the Purple Heart Medal is. Did they stop teaching any of this in school?
I also had a very good coaching session this week. I think I was really able to help this person through a real rough patch. It’s pretty common for entrepreneurs to go through times where they question everything, can’t find their motivation and are feeling like things are just out of control. Getting someone through something like this and watching them come out even better afterward is extremely rewarding. I wish I could help more people.
That’s it. A pretty boring week for me! Between surprises, changes and weather delays I am behind on this deck but should finish it up this week and hopefully at least sneak in one round of golf before I go back to my friends house to finish up the job I’ve been working on there.
I hope you have a fantastic week!
