Merry Christmas

It’s time to wrap up my final consulting tasks, gather my little ones (and not-so-little-ones!) around the fire, break out the cookies and the presents, and enjoy the holiday.

Thanks to all my clients, partners, friends, readers and others who have made 2007 such an enjoyable and productive year.

Have a wonderful Christmas season!

The story, from Sports Illustrated (June 2005), starts like this:

“I try to be a good father. Give my kids mulligans. Work nights to pay for their text messaging. Take them to swimsuit shoots. But compared to Dick Hoyt, I suck.

“Eighty-five times he’s pushed his disabled son, Rick, 26.2 miles in marathons. Eight times he’s not only pushed him 26.2 miles in a wheelchair but also towed him 2.4 miles in a dinghy while swimming and pedaled him 112 miles in a seat on the handlebars – all in the same day.

“Dick’s also pulled him cross-country skiing, taken him on his back mountain climbing and once hauled him across the U.S. on a bike. Makes taking your son bowling look a little lame, right? And what has Rick done for his father? Not much – except save his life….”

An amazing and touching story about the love of a father for his disabled son. The story, in words, here. But even better, watch the video below. Well worth a few minutes of your time.
