A few months ago, Bob Goff told me I needed to take flying lessons. He said it’d teach me a lot about life, in particular how to land safely even when the engines cut out. In life, an engine can unexpectedly die sometimes (at work, in relationships, etc.), but that doesn’t mean you’re going to crash. Training teaches you how to avoid crisis and not panic — you pick a spot, point the plane and land that thing, even if it’s different from where you thought you’d end up. Bob, today I started my lessons.
Thank you @summitbasecamp for the thoughtful Father’s Day surprise. Gotta admit, I got a little misty reading it with Cohen. He was so excited. :)
Happy Memorial Day from the Strang boys! (at Cocoa Beach, Florida)
Today the RELEVANT staff decorated my office, took me to lunch and threw me a surprise birthday party, complete with a cake and awesome present. It was truly a total surprise — considering my birthday was March 15. (The story is they ordered this custom-made present for me in February from a craftsman in Brooklyn, but they were so backed up it just now arrived, hence the belated party.) 😂
#TBT to last week, when @bobgoff and I had some capers at the White House. (The bracelet means something, don’t ask.) #LLF
So I’ve never actually taken a selfie like this before, but since a bunch of you helped me pick out a tie last night, I figured I’d show which one most of you chose. OK, well, off to breakfast at the White House…
RG @loswhit: You know that number @bobgoff has in the back of #LoveDoes? It’s really his phone. And he really does answer your calls. Even when he’s in the White House. And he even hands his phone to his friends so they can talk to you too. Like he did with @cameronstrang on Monday. #MyFriendsAreReallyFantastic
Don and Betsy got married!!
Play it cool, man. Play it cool.
Breaking Bad as a 1995 dramedy
That’ll throw ‘em off the scent.
"Daddy, I want to stay here for EVERY day!"
Beach weekend with my best bud. :) (at Daytona Beach)
10 years ago today RELEVANT debuted. We had no idea what we were doing … and made a ton of mistakes along the way. But God is good. I’ve been honored to work with and meet so many amazing people along the way. And I’m humbled that so many of you have read and supported the magazine. A massive thank you to everyone who’s been part of the journey. Here’s to 10 more! :)
