Nice to see you in my inbox John, and I've got nothing but respect for:

-pausing to take stock of priorities and reallocate your resources to honor them

-learning a new language (just starting my foray into this with Spanish)

-running 80K!!!

Will always look forward to your posts when it works for you.

Loved reading through these reflections, John! This article just screams "we can do hard things!" - humans are resilient AF!

I've lived in Sweden and Spain long enough to have tried to learn the language at business level but it's HARD. I know that you've just passed your C1 and I personally respect the commitment and courage it takes to show up for that! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

John, great to see you. Your message was just what I needed to read. I’ve been in a dip since the 4th of July as my family and work commitments (clients & employees) have been at an apex. I’ve been beating myself up about it and it’s been weighing on me. I will give myself Grace (as I can feel you have to yourself) and keep going - per Seth G’s perspective. Thank you again.

Your pictures and your running feats continue to be breathtaking (and I imagine that to be quite literally). So good to read what you've been up to! Hope to continue following along :)
