Hey Team!

Hope you are doing great!

This past weekend, I had the chance to enjoy a concert at Jones Beach on Long Island... and most importantly, spend time with family on Sunday...

One of my favorite things to do... a true time when you can put your hair down, eat, have great conversation, and truly enjoy the moments... 

I always remind myself, these moments don't last forever.. so take them in..

And, this Sunday, I was speaking with my wife's grandmother, Nelly.. 

She is a 98 year old Irish Fireball that is filled with spunk and whit... 

Quite a combo...

And when you become 98.. 99 in September... you have almost 100 years of knowledge and advice to share with everybody that is younger than you... which is the majority of the population..

The Coach in me always like to hear what people have to say... and this moment was no different..

So, between the Irish brogue, and sharp tongue, she gave me a great lesson about life, aging, and playing the whole game.....

She said, unsolicited...

" I gave it my best shot.... I gave life my best shot... I worked hard, I loved, and I really enjoyed myself and my family. I truly gave it my best shot! I feel like a kid inside of an old ladies body.."

Amazing...

I love speaking to those from another generation who immigrated here with nothing..

They had to make a life for themselves..

They had the guts to leave everything they had...

All the comforts they ever knew..

Leaving their family for a better life and to "give it a shot"... 

Amazing..

It really makes you sit back and think about all the "Crap" we complain about on a day to day basis.. when really we have so much....

My question is this: "Are you digging in? Are you giving it your best shot? Or... are you just waiting for life to play-out.. What are you doing with your Days? Weeks? Months? Years? Are you out there building your legacy.. your dream... your families legacy?"

What are you doing with your time?

Get serious.

This is your life...

Make it what you want... you can do it... if you believe you can...

Play hardball!

And remember.. with everything you do.. 

Always GIVE IT YOUR BEST SHOT! 

When you are 98, 99, or 100... you will be able to look back and feel damn good you did... #noregrets..
