Hope all the moms enjoyed their weekend. I love my mother for always being there for me. I look like my mother and we both appreciate good food so a Mother’s Day brunch was appropriate. The Rusty Pelican was spectacular and the only thing better was the company! It was the Passover Gang plus my cousin Tanya surprised her mom all the way from Arizona!
Me and Lil Ball stayed all weekend at The Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne. She is a super mom and my queen. Not just this weekend but everyday. We saw another comedy show at The Improv. This time it was the hysterical Carlos Mencia. Besides being smart and funny, Carlos loves making people laugh and he did it for over an hour and a half with ease!
Next weekend I’ll be in Portland for another Rock n Roll Half Marathon. Doctor Dribble’s Helping Hands will be at a local center providing a free basketball clinic for the community. As much as I love running in marathons with my basketballs, I am passionate about impacting others. There are so many valuable lessons to be learned from the game of basketball. It’s my way favorite way of giving back.
I can’t express how proud I am of Sponge. Many college basketball players use this time to go home and unwind but not him. He’s staying in West Virginia to earn money by working construction. Looks like we’ll be doing ball control via Skype. Whatever it takes, we don’t make excuses. We get things done.
Every week it seems like new opportunities present themselves. When I was young I learned the importance of creating a funnel of business. It all starts by planting seeds and remaining consistent. “Little things add up and they become big things.” John Wooden was right about that. Every week I chip away at my goals and open more doors of possibility. As I eat my egg whites at Roasters n Toasters this week I’ll be planning future Doctor Dribble events and projects. There’s something about that place that gets my creative juices flowing! Flowing like a natural instincts freestyle at Newton’s Method!
The size of the step doesn’t matter as long as it’s in the right direction,
