  1. Don't Say No For Them
    When I was in high school and I would have a crush on a girl I thought was out of my league, I'd get bummed out. I thought if I asked them out, they'd say no, so I just wouldn't ask. My dad would point out that it's silly to assume their answer. If it's 'no,' they'll tell me so. And it could always be 'yes' instead. So why would you make that decision for them? Let them make it themselves! This is not only solid dating advice; it also applies to sales and life in general.
  2. Let Go
    Probably the most vague piece of advice a person can receive, but one of my favorites. I crave control. I need to feel like I'm driving, even in situations I know are entirely out of my hands. Fighting for that control in those situations only creates needless friction.
  3. A ship is safe in the harbor...
    ...but that's not what ships are for. I get far too precious with my own material possessions. It never hurts to be reminded that they're just things. You can protect them all you want, but they're meant to be used. Guitars, cars, shoes, clothes... they're all replaceable, and they're all meant to serve me, not the other way around.

    Nailed the tree
    There's a tree about 200 yards out from the tees at the driving range. I wasn't necessarily aiming for it, but to hit it, I had to hit the ball dead straight and just about as far as I can hit it. So proud.

    I've been working towards a sales goal of $112,066 for my store, and today, we hit it. If you had asked me at the beginning of September whether I thought we'd hit that number, I would have started laughing and gradually transitioned to crying.

    Dear Hunter
    Ethan's been excited to see The Dear Hunter for weeks. I didn't think I'd be able to go, but on Thursday night, I realized I could. Bought tickets for Nik and I. Went to the show, ran into Bill and Kayla there, and had a delicious meal afterwards at One Eyed Betty's.
