WELCOME to Heat Stroke (visits often from MECA), Trucker (from The Fort), and Puppy Chow (Pittsburgh, has had a place on HHI for years but just got plugged into the F3 tribe 3 weeks ago).
-Some PAX have lost jobs, some are repairing family issues, many unspoken…just normal man stuff, for real.
-Part of what makes #TheYachtClub magnificent are the visitors: brand new to F3, just discovered #TYC, or count the days until they can return to #TYC…the story line here is not about the magnificence of #TYC. It’s real men, doing real stuff, seeking real change. And then sharing it.
-The guy you’re working beside is hurting, in some way. Encourage him, reach out; it’s manly to inquire and act.
Leading or following, there is never a day that goes by that I’m not thankful for the fact that a bunch of normal/imperfect men congregate, work, sweat, laugh, pray, and form an amazing team/group. Ask someone new to come out this week, it only makes us better.
Taking the lead is a privilege, try it out.
