Hindsight is a lie
I hope you're well. Feels like a lot has happened since we spoke last.
The boys are in their sixth week of school. We're trying a six days per week for 30 weeks format this year. Saturday is their day off. So far so good.
Marty and I are up to our ears in the jury management and court systems business. I'm amazed when diving into these niche industries at how nuanced and rich they are. The people, the language and dialog, the way business gets done and provides value to its customers — it's fascinating.
At the end of August, we took a business trip out to Kansas to play a Perry Maxwell designed golf course called Prairie Dunes. It was built in the 1920s by hand, horse, and mule. If you want to nerd out about the golf side of things, hit reply and we'll talk. What I want to mention was how amazing our host member, Brandon, was. He was generous and joyful with his time, made us feel welcome, and helped us slow down enough to get the full experience of spending time on the property.

Looking back we always have perfect hindsight. But it's not real. Who knows what decisions we would have made had we made different ones in the moment. I tend to struggle with this "one that got away" mentality every so often, usually when I'm going in to a time of planning. This year, I'm working to have more acceptance as we roll into goals and objectives for the next 6-18 months.
- I can't believe it's been a year since my story from golf camp was published in The Golfer's Journal. If you'd like to read "What Happens at Golf Camp," go here.
Alright. It’s been great catching up.
