Uninformed Can Be Fixed…

Uniformed is easily fixed. Ignorant is more often than not a completely terminal condition. I read last year that more and more people are not being paid for what they know or what they have memorized, but rather what they can do with information they can readily acquire.  The reason why?  Simple.  You can google, […]

The Real Problem With Too Busy

I recently had a serious communication breakdown.  You know? The kind where one email was interpreted completely wrong and thus responded to in accordance with misconception.  That response was met with equal force and then some, leaving the situation very tenuous. My father, who is much wiser than I am told me nearly a decade […]

BAMF Week

The Time Is And Was Now

When both my brother and I were younger my old man gave him a clock for his wall.  It was fairly normal with hour, minute and second hand but instead of actual 1 – 12 hour notations it simply said “now” for each sixty minute interval.  The point was not lost on my ultra-procrastinating brother.  […]

The Complete Urban Athlete

The holidays were a bit rough, they took more out of me and more time than I ever anticipated.  Thus is the reason I am getting this final installment out so late and so far behind the others in the series on what makes a first responder/firefighter and ultimately a complete Urban Athlete.
