(Can Netflix handle the bandwidth that’s coming their way? I sure hope so. Planning my binge watching now.)
"Funny thing about wearing your struggle on the outside: it makes you stronger. It teaches you how to adapt. It forces you to dig deep and do more. And while people like you are sitting at the cool kids table intent on holding others down, the ragtag team of not-so-cool kids is busy pulling others up…and we’ve become an unstoppable force driving the world forward."
12 states and more than 4,500 miles—bring it.
A couple of weeks ago, I asked you for help planning our epic family road trip vacation. Thanks to everyone who pitched in!! Thorough, creative and insightful ideas filled up my inbox and now— we have a plan! Here’s a few route highlights we’re looking forward to on our trek through 12 states across more than 4,500 miles:
- Overnight at Arch in St. Louis, MO.
- Pops in Arcadia, OK.
- Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, TX.
- Stand on a corner in Winslow, AZ.
- Overnight in Flagstaff, AZ.
- Petrified National Forest, AZ.
- Grand Canyon, AZ.
- Wild burros in Oatman, AZ.
- Las Vegas, NV.
- Hoover Dam, NV.
- Red Rock Canyon, NV.
- Four Corners Monument, UT.
- Garden of the Gods, CO.
- Pioneer Village, NE.
- Field of Dreams movie site, IA.
And, as promised, here’s a document with a list of all the ideas that were sent in.
Special thanks go to these guys:
- Jody Wissing for the reminder to stay flexible, don’t let the plan boss you around and discover things as go.
- Carol Shurr for a big care package of road trip literature.
- Corri Page for hidden gems and URLs.
- Jennifer Armstrong for most comprehensive list of ideas with first hand narrative to go with it.
- Steve Muscato for making me laugh out loud at the “standing on a corner in Winslow, AZ” idea and photo gallery from his family’s road trip.
"Greatness is helping others realize they are great, beautiful, capable. Genius is seeing the wonder and possibility in those others ignore."
(via my friend Tracy quoting Cory Booker) This quote reminds me how grateful I am for the people who saw the possibility in me.
Pass it on to a difficult person in your life—you just might change theirs.
"A leader is someone who has the courage to say publicly what everybody else is whispering privately. It is not his insight that sets the leader apart from the crowd. It is his courage to act on what he sees, to speak up when everyone else is silent. Next generation leaders are those who would rather challenge what needs to change and pay the price than remain silent and die on the inside."
