4 Realizations From the Western Slope

To kick-off the Day Fire Thoughts, a few weeks ago I rambled out to the Western Slope of Colorado, camping in the high desert National Forrest Land. I arrived in Summit County and quickly tramped with my buddy Michael down to Ouray, Silverton, and Cortez.

Times like these always spark a few moments of reflections. And I’ll admit, you’re not about to discover how to do rocket science or how submarines work with these few simple thoughts.

  1. Don’t commit to something you can’t do well.

  2. It’s okay to say no.

  3. Call your love ones, you’ll never know when they’re gone.

  4. Do one thing everyday that you’re bad at.
