I’m a pretty firm believer in leading by example, both in my personal life and professional career. It’s one thing to talk about doing something, quite another to actually show it. In my current job, this is all too true, in that I’ve seen so much more success by actually showing someone our product rather than just talking about it.
This carries over to my personal life as well. In the past 15 months, our son has grown from our tiny little nugget to a little man, developing his own personality that makes him more fun to be around every day. We like to think this is hugely in part to the fact that we take him everywhere. In the past 15 months, he’s been to D.C., Los Angeles, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New York City, and finally Tokyo. He’s been on more flights in his first 15 months of life than I did in my first 10 years. Not only has he grown into that little man I mentioned earlier, he’s becoming more adventurous every day.
Needless to say, this makes his mom and I incredibly happy. Until the next adventure.
