The inaugural list of the things in my life or on my wish list.  Enjoy!

Source of Coffee – The Indian summer keeps the days warm but the mornings are still cold and coffee is still delicious.  When looking to get out the door fast, I brew up a single serving in my COFFEEBOXX by OXX.  It works fast, offers a variety of size choices and won’t break if I knock it off the counter or accidentally run it over with my truck.

Mode of Transportation – The mild fall has kept my skis on the rack and my bike at the ready.  I ride a Specialized Stumpjumper HT cause it’s simple and fast!  To protect my head, I’ll don a POC helmet coupled with Oakley shades, even in the dark cause I gots to look good!

Book –  It gets dark early and I love reading.  I just finished Malcolm Gladwell‘s, Blink and received a tremendous amount of incite into my unconscious biases and how to shape the first two seconds of thought.

Website – Christmas is coming.  Most of my list can be found at Huckberry.  They have great stuff, are always running deals and there site includes an awesome journal.  Subscribe and you’ll get lists like these from their cool employees!

Quote – “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start now and make a brand new ending.” ~ Marcus Aurelius.

Curiosity – I’ve added Bragg’s apple cider vinegar to my daily regimen.  I put two tablespoons of vinegar and one tablespoon of honey in a mug with warm water.  I like the taste and hear it’s good for me?  An apple cider vinegar a day…

Christmas Ask – An essential tool for backpacking trips has proven to be a hatchet.  I use it for anything from chopping wood to hamming in tent stakes.  Any hardware stool hatchet will do, but I’d prefer the Straight-Hold hatchet from Best Made.

Question – I like questions, even those with no answer.  They make you think and keep your mind sharp.  Here is a good one from Gregory Stock’s book, The Book of Questions.

If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about any one thing about yourself, life the future or anything else, what would you want and why?

Answer – My answer…

I would like to know what my children will be doing when they are 40 and if it made them happy or if they’d wished they’d gone in a different direction in life.  And then, knowing this, I’d help encourage them to go in the direction of their dreams.
