I couldn’t find a video or song that fit with today’s post. So instead, this is probably one of my favorite inspirational posters ever. You can’t really read the quote on the bottom, but it says:
"It’s kind of fun to do the impossible" - Walt Disney
Today’s theme is short and sweet. It’s time to put up or shut up.
If you read my blog you know that I talk a good game about motivation, determination, and working harder than everyone else. This weekend gave me the perfect test.
My friend has an extra ticket to the Penn State vs. Alabama football game this weekend in Penn State with a bunch of my friends. If you’ve ever been to Penn State during a big football weekend, you know how ridiculous this trip will be.
Then there is a hackday in NYC - a 24 hour hustle session to build some awesome idea and then present it.
Obviously, I am going to the hackday.
I will also be missing the opening weekend of the NFL - a historically wonderful day in the city of Hoboken. This is probably more painful to me than the Penn State game to put it in perspective.
Enough about what is being given up. It is the right decision. I have no regrets about it.
It’s time to dazzle the world with our hackday project.
