Audiobook I am hearing: The Common Path To Uncommon Success by John Lee Dumas It has been a long time since I have written a negative review of a book I am listening to, however this definitely deserves a thumbs down.  To summarize this work, Dumas tells you multiple times about his path to success which, upon hearing the first time, seems to be the only valuable content.  The recommendations seem over simplified and not descriptive enough to actually help you become "Uncommonly Successful".  I am bummed because Dumas has come out with some good stuff over the years through his wildly successful podcast.  I guess we all deserve a mulligan! Quote I am pondering: "A year from now you may wish that you had started today!" ~ Karen Lamb One of the most rewarding aspects of my life is working with amazing people every day on my team.  In fact, at the end of my career I believe that the people who I will have influenced the most won't be my patients, but rather my team members.  It is always incredibly exciting for me to go through the hiring process.  You never know when the right person is going to walk through the door and absolutely change your life.  Over the 13 years I have lead Aligned Life I have had the chance to work with some absolutely dedicated and talented individuals.  Each of them contributed in their own way to creating the experience you go through as a member of the Aligned Life community.  In starting this new journey

Race I am running: Ironman 70.3 in Santa Cruz After months of trying, I am proud to announce that I have been accepted to run the Half Ironman on September 12, 2021!  The distances for the race are as follows; 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run.  Having never done anything close to this level of intensity I can honestly say I am scared and excited.  Honestly, I am freaking out.  This race will be the culmination of over one and half years of training 6 days a week. It will also serve as a milestone for me following a very difficult time in my life.  However, before I can officially run this race and complete a bucket list goal, I need your help!  My acceptance into the race was pending my ability to raise $1750 for the Ironman Foundation.  The foundation attempts to provide funding for a number of important issues including COVID relief, racial equity, bicycles for children and hunger relief.  For the full story of my "Why" for doing this event and to donate directly online please click HERE.  I greatly appreciate your support and could not do this without your help.  Thank you! Vacation I am taking: The Week of April 12-16 Due to the blessing of being deemed an "Essential Business" throughout the past year and  attempting to navigate through the COVID affected world, I have not been able to take much time away from running the operation at Aligned Life.  This in conjunction with my boys being on spring break made it seem like the right time to take a step back for a week to get re-energized.  I recognize the impact on all of you who depend upon our facility to take care of your health and accordingly appreciate your patience.  I strongly recommend that you spend more time during the aforementioned week stretching, focusing on your body position habits, getting a massage (Stan is available for services in the office!), using your home traction orthotic and taking walks.  These behaviors will help you get to the following week without getting into a crisis.  Once again, I really appreciate the chance to get away and rest assured, I will be a better provider for you on the other side of the holiday!
