In an essay on the Bhagavad Gita, Mohandas Gandhi clarifies the connection between action and detachment:

"He who gives up action, falls, He who gives up only the reward, rises. But renunciation of fruit in no way means indifference to the result.

In regard to every action one must know the result that is expected to follow, the means thereto, and the capacity for it.

He who, being thus equipped, is without desire for the result, and is yet wholly engrossed in the due fulfillment of the task before him, is said to have renounced the fruits of his action."

When we tell our kids to do something around the house, a common reply is "What will I get for it?".  Our common answer is "the satisfaction of a job well-done".

When I was growing up only an act of God would close schools. Today it's cold weather.

A fortuitous meeting I almost didn’t make led to my getting a job exactly one month to the day I was let go from my former one.

Story
Tagline
I'm a wizard, and not only when playing WOW.
Introduction
I’m a growth hacker and inbound marketing specialist, steeped in direct response marketing techniques and principles. I build my own tools in Python, Ruby and R to gather, analyze, and visualize data, all for the purpose of creating content marketing strategies. I love going to meetups and conferences, and networking with developers, designers, and business executives. I’m comfortable wearing a suit and tie as I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

Bragging rights
Started business school the same day my daughter was born, all while running a web development company.
