I remember sitting in the living room of me and my wife’s first house.  I had just quit my day job and started my business.  And, she had about a month left before our first kid would be born.

I remember telling myself two things

1) “Grind it out now, so I don’t have to later.”

Meaning, do what I could now to afford myself freedom of time as our family grew.

2) “Never miss a game.”

Yesterday was soccer tryouts for my 8 year old. His big bro made a competition soccer team last year, and he wants to follow.

I’ve held true to my word.  At every game. Even if it’s “just” tryouts.
