Notable Quotes

"I like fencing, I also like to know that the gate is open. If you close the gate, I'm going to jump over it. But if the gate is open, and I can see the gate is open, and I have the option, I'll still play in the yard. I'll push the fences out." 

"I like to think of the mission as the bumpers of a bowling lane. And once you install bumpers on a bowling lane, you can throw that ball anywhere you want. And the likelihood of you missing a pin is so low that it doesn't matter. You can be wild and free." 

"You never wanna put a saddle on a mustang. But if you put that mustang in enough space and close that area off so that it is consistently able to move freely in a direction, I will travel really far."

"Go with the flow, but put the bumpers on. Not as constrictions or restraints, but as a guide to understand where the goal is."

"A lot of people have 50 spinning plates in their life. And probably 40 of those are not getting them toward any goal, they're just running around spinning plates and all of a sudden you get to Saturday Morning and you're like, What just happened? Where'd my week go?"

"And the vision I have for purpose is that, it's who you are on the path to the mission."

"When you kick that ball down the hill. And say, there is a lake down there. Your intention is to kick the ball down the hill into the lake. When you kick that ball, the moment it leaves your foot, every single thing that happens is on you."

"It's not about holding accountability to the actual activity, it's about holding accountability to who you are when you are going to do and then do the activity."
