Doing Great Things

I often wonder what it is that gives some people a passion to accomplish something and set tangible goals for their lives and others no more ambition than to make it home in time from work for their favorite TV show.

I ran into one of the youth leaders from last year today, someone I highly admire and rarely see. He has built himself up through various entrepreneurial endeavored and real estate deals, something I too would like to do once I have a firmer business foundation (hence my MBA pursued). So why would some people like my friend seek out to better themselves and others just coast (not necessarily financially)?

David! Hello, the first time you posted something on my blog about the Adler's house I wasn't bright enough to click on your name to read your profile. I thought someone had randomly found my blog (cuz I had it open to any blogger). It freaked me out cuz then Rich let me know that maybe I shouldn't have told people what I had about the house. And, I didn't ever venture on to your site until tonite. Do many other poeople know about your blog and not just post comments? I mean, I guess other people know about mine, but still don't post either, so like you said I also don't have any expectations.

I'm sorry about you and Natalie. :( Brooke actually informed me the other night, told me some of the reasoning... that's gotta be hard!

Well, this girl must go to bed, but now that I know who you are:), I'll check back more often. What does your blogger name mean anyways?

I'll try to bring that CCM on wed. night. IT's funny because Corinne actually brought in the mail last wed. night when you all were here and the ccm was in it, I just totally forgot about it.

okay... really ending this time... good night!

Yeah, I think I need to change my "blogger name" to something a little more descriptive. h@Rdw1R3 is my geeky name that I use for a lot my computer related stuff. Since this is targeted at less of a geeky crowd, I need to turn down the geek factor a little.

The break up has been hard, but I'm confident it was the right move. It is always hard to break something off when it is going well. But I figured it was better to do it earlier rather than later when you know it isn't heading anywhere. Not that that makes it any easier.

As for posts, I'm not certain how many people really know about my blog. I know Brooke knows, and you, but other than that probably no one. I haven't really promoted it yet. I'll get the word out eventually, I'm not one for too many mass emails.

You obviously don't know me as well as you used to. I expected more than a shallow assessment of my life based on one of my hobbies.
My life revolves around my wife, my family, my friends, my career, and my faith. yes, I have travelled (and still have trips planned) although your sappy "plans to travel the world" does not ring a bell.
Not all of us base our life's purpose and identity around penny pinching and the accumulation of money, although maybe that is what really matters in life. If enjoying movies is "sick", what is idolizing the almighty greenback?

Sorry Dave, I love you man, but you had that coming.

P.S.: Veterinarian? How many people do you know that followed through on the career plans from 6th and 7th grade? I guess I should give up the career path I have chosen and revert back to the days when we would frolic on the playground. That sounds like the mature thing to do. Obviously since we have seen each other maybe once every 2 years since you left, you must really know me. Grow up.
