No Quit

 In this episode I share my thoughts on perseverance and persistence.  #noquit is the theme of the month and the rest of the year for me.


I share my thoughts on the police brutality protests in the NFL. 

I close with some reflection on being the father of a middle school age daughter. My children are getting older and at every step in their growth their are new concerns for me as a father.

Show Notes: A Legacy of Competence

In this inaugural episode of the Ask Your Oldhead Podcast, I discuss one of the underlying concepts that inspired me to start this project. The transmission of a legacy of competence is vital to ones personal growth and finding a place for themselves in the world. I am a stand up dude. I feel confident putting that in print. Who I am is a result of those I have had in my life to show me the way and the choices I have made. It is culture. External factors impact our lives and guide many of our choices. Culture responds to those forces equipping us to adapt to world and sustain our sense of self. That is why I started with this episode. Please add on with your thoughts on twitter at @askyouroldhead.  Peace
