Gratitude, Family, Community
I do dope things.
I quit jobs, programs I don’t like.
I love using the internet.
I love the Warriors.
I will make minimum wage, even with my college degree.
I should have my own place because adults move out.
I should be working at least 30 hours a week, to be financially independent.
I know canvassers whose job is to get donations for HipHopforChange in the morning and afternoon.
I know Amazon prime shoppers are shopping for groceries at 4:00 am.
I know Nordstrom warehouse is moving packages at 5:30 am.
I know someone washing all the dishes at Whole Foods…
I know someone counting ballots and collecting Census data…
I’m happy I quit things I don’t like or enjoy.
Gratitude offers me contentment and peace.
Can I view being a prime shopper differently?
Working-class person, earning a living, working towards financial independence.
A person who wants to be financially free.
A person who wants to grow personally and professionally.
I am a baby brother; the youngest of the family, who earns money, and understands what work is.
25-year-old adult with diplegic cerebral palsy, figuring it out.
It can allow me more time to focus on the present moment, doing things I enjoy.
The main reason I left Amazon is I didn’t want to do it anymore.
The main reason I work: Get paid.
I expect to get better, each day.
Focus on one thing at a time.
Set boundaries for screen time.
Screen time: 2 hour limit
Like on the court, you wanna contribute, for your team.
Be a viable option on the floor, both ends, and be a good teammate.
That’s how players can add value to their team, and be an asset for their organization.

How do you communicate that narrow focus in a way that connects that through-line to every single person in the room?
True to who you are.
“The best way to capture a moment is to pay attention.”
