Notes from Steve

Propel. This is my word for 2018. “Propel” by itself is not enough, to move in a forward direction is admirable but I want to propel and win at the same time. My friend in Chicago tried to pretty up “win” by saying “how about ‘triumph’?”. Still means winning, I...

Notes from Steve

I want to take a stand against inevitability. There are only a couple of things that are truly inevitable – we’re all going to die, but pretty much … that might be it. We’ll all get older, sure, but a decline in health doesn’t inevitably have to follow. We were...
