Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! The last 2 months flew by so fast. So much has happened. Since I last wrote, I have done tons of traveling and catching up with family and good friends. I always believe life is about creating memories… and in the last 2 months, TONS of memories were created. Here are some of the highlights.
SANTA MARIA, CALIFORNIA (mid Nov. 2009)
MONTEREY / CARMEL VALLEY BY THE SEA (mid Nov. 2009)
THANKSGIVING AT SAN RAMON (San Francisco)
OBI’S BIRTHDAY – Nov. 28, 2009
LOS ANGELES (early December)
NEW YORK CITY (Dec. 2009)
BACK HOME IN LOS ANGELES
It was so nice to be back home again. Los Angeles is so different than NYC. It’s like 2 different countries! The weather was so nice and warm in the 70s that I felt like going to the beach and jumping into the ocean. After dealing with 15 – 30 degree weather for a month, LA’s 70s seemed like a heat wave!
There are also tons of events that I didn’t get a chance to take pictures (or forgot)… such as the memorable dinner I had with the Calvosas in NYC… dinner with Pete Feng in Cupertino… hanging out with Keith Lee at his house in Los Altos… and visiting my good junior high friend, Todd Betzag in Brooklyn. Congrats to Todd for being a new dad!
Some good news… I went to see my doctor for my annual checkup and he told me that I was one of the healthiest people for my age that he has ever seen! He said I should be his posterboy and spokesman for his other patients! My good cholesterol (HDL) was 92 which is more than double what is the “target”. Anything over 40 is good and mine was at 92 and off the charts! The doctor didn’t even know why mine was so high and asked me how did I become interested in being so healthy. I shared with him my story and told him my formula was 1) good diet 2) exercise and 3) supplements!
Books I have read since I last wrote:
1) Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk
2) Conspiracy of the Rich by Robert Kiyosaki
Currently reading and rereading:
1) The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
2) Can’t Lose Sales Tips by Joe Girard
3) How to Sell Anything to Anybody by Joe Girard
4) Little Red Book of Selling by Jeffrey Gitomer
Last thing… I know many of you have goals for 2010… having goals is a MUST and important but do you have Action Plans that relate to your goals? Having goals with action is meaningless so make sure you take IMMEDIATE action! Email me directly and I can share with you some of my goals for 2010 and what action steps I have taken already.
Until next time, God Bless
