Blank sheet

I'm drawing a blank on what to write tonight. I've been at CSU in Ft Collins, CO for the last week for a training conference and have been sitting back observing a lot of different types of people, giftings and personalities. You would think there would be a ton to write about and expand upon, but I guess I'm just drawing a blank.

The Wisdom of Stu Scott and Coach Wooden

The first post: with all the mobility coming up this summer, I figured it was time to jump on the Blogger train.

I figured I should start with the explanation behind my blog title. Every blog I've ever seen has been a pretty accurate representation of its author. I've had a couple friends tell me lately that I'm a pretty chill dude, so I provided the personality and Stu provided the description.

That being said, there probably won't be much said here. I like keeping things simple and to the point, so there won't be any novels written. I've been thinking lately about how much I like the challenge of condensing things in life to a few simple principles or values and extracting a ridiculous amount of wisdom from them. Being 28, I've got a ton of experience and wisdom to draw from and get that done.....NOT. That being said, one of my favorite men to learn from is Coach John Wooden from UCLA. His Pyramid of Success is pretty simple but heavy-laden with wisdom as well. I never played a lot of competitive basketball, but would play for that man in a heartbeat.

If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.
