Coach
Builder/Leader
Communicator

To be a good coach you need to be a strong leader
To be a strong leader you need to be able to communicate well

A Coach is someone who, in the deepest part of their heart, wants to help you do better and is willing to undertake whatever pain is necessary to discover and rediscover how to do this. A great coach will always look at your failure or success as part of them and will also be grinding their internal gears to get better themselves so they can better help you. A great coach compromises to uphold the greater vision but never as a shortcut. A great coach loves their players and gains inspiration for their own life through working with them. A great coach can separate themselves from their failures and successes and never wants success more than their players.

Lessons from Little League

Probably the biggest lesson I’ve learned from coaching 12u Little League is there are tremendous gifts right in front of you if you allow yourself to see them. For me, it took a while to see because I had been so focused, so well trained, so short sighted on assuming I knew what the gifts were.

Mail It In

Do you remember all those people you use to work with,
have fun with
get in trouble with
go crazy with
do really, really questionable shit with?

Do you remember those people?

Where are they now
and what are they doing?

Are they still doing questionable shit?
Or have they traded it in
for predictable shit?

Trust me, I get it.

But I think I let you down,
my friend.

I think I let you down.

I stopped expanding
and started settling
I think I let you down.

The world, it got me,
fangs deep in
it was always trying
it was bound to win
a questionable man once said

every time I try to get out
they suck me back in

Do you remember the fun
and now you have the justification
you’re older now
and more mature
you know exactly
what’s behind each door
because you don’t check
new doors
no more.

Yeah,
you don’t check new doors
no more.

Do you remember those friends
and the trouble you got in
and the way you didn’t give a fuck
and the way you looked at folks who did
as if they didn’t have no luck

Jesus mother fucking life

We gave up
We gave up
We gave up the fight
and our world rewarded us in the night
as it laughed and laughed
with sick deelight
it holds no quarter
and it wil not fight
if you want to mail it in
the world says
It’s all right
all right
all right
all right.

STRONG FIRE

The world is a vampire
sent to drink

Billy Corgan

25 years ago I was woken up by my fire
I built a wall around it
and there it burns
contained

42 years ago I was woken up by my fire
I built a wall around it
and there is burns
contained

Tonight I was woken up by my fire
I have a strong fire
I have a strong fire
I have a strong fire

It’s time to let it burn down the dead wood
It’s time to start new growth
If I had let it burn
so many years ago
I wouldn’t have to rage

But today, rage must happen before anything else

there is a chance it will get away from me

there is a chance it will get away from me

thank god there is a chance.
