Taking a Hiatus
I am taking hiatus from the Tour Outsider blog; am not sure when I will be coming back and posting on a regular basis. Thank you for being a regular reader, as it has been enjoyable to receive comments from and have a dialogue with you all.
This blog is for posting picks for golf tournaments. It specifically compares my picks (aka, the Tour Outsider) with a Tour "Insider". It is a fun way to see if it is better to be an insider or an outsider in terms of seeing who can predict which golfers will play well in a given tournament.

1. Once you have identified a need, DO SOMETHING immediately.
2. Be the first to admit you suck at something, then work your ass off to fix it. (Your goal is to not suck twice.)
3. Be proud of your accomplishments, but not cocky.

see the letter to the fcc from alexis ohanian, a partner at y combinator.  the letter is addressed to the fcc and talks about the fcc needing to be careful with regulations it is planning to impose on the internet and internet service providers. that is important, and i agree with what alex is saying. however, that is not the purpose for this post. rather, i find it interesting how much employee at a y combinator company generates in terms of market cap.

at the begin of the letter alex talks about the numbers of y combinator (to show creditability to the fcc). the numbers suggestion that each person employed at a company which y combinator has invested in generates $666,666 of worth (in terms of market cap) [ this number is derived by: $2bn market cap / 3,000 employees ]

I loved this article. The concepts can be applied to more than just entrepreneurs; most people could apply the practices in their lives, regardless of their roles in life. The body is an amazing thing! Balance, flexibility, live in the present, etc.

Very professional, and customer focused. They (owner, sales person, installation crew) worked with me on finding the a/c unit that fit our needs and answered my questions throughout the installation process. In addition, they came out and checked the unit several times after the installation when I had questions to make sure everything was working, including both examining the unit and the installation. Thanks.

Tuffy was recommended to me by a colleague at work when I moved to Kalamaozo two years ago. Since then, I have taken our Volvos to Tuffy and have been satisfied with the service provided by both the Kalamazoo and the Portage location (owned by the same person). A recent example of their good customer service was when they looked at a leak we were having in one of our cars. It had been 6-8 months since they had replaced the rack-and-pinion on the car (a big expense for any vehicle, but we liked the vehicle and wanted to keep it), and they looked at the car to see where was the leak. They spent time diagnosing where the fluids could be coming from. Even though the leak looked like it was coming from the transmission (they had us also have a transmission shop look at it confirm that the transmission was in good order), it was finally determined that there was a lose fitting on a tube from the rack. Even though it had been some time since they installed the new rack, they made sure the leak was fixed and did so without any charge. I appreciated the extra time and attention they provided to ensure the leak was fixed (they looked at the vehicle serval times a week latter just to make sure the leak was solved). Thanks.
