Do What Moves You

by Byron on February 10, 2019

Decker and Gibson-

It’s hard to explain what I want to explain and I’m guessing it won’t come out right, but I’m going to try to express the thing that I think may be the most important thing there is and it relates to yourself and the world…

Do what moves you.  It’s not usually one particular thing.  It may be a lot of little things from different disciplines, but “it” is always what moves you – what inspires you.  The thing that inspires or moves you may not even come from you – it may be divine and you are its channel into the world of women and men.

Do what you have to do.  Learning to find, then learning to harness, what moves you is a process.  It’s not easy.  You have to learn to trust yourself.

This isn’t just about one little area of life.  For me, it everything.  It’s putting soul into every single thing you do.  Being a Dad.  Being a boss.  Being an entrepreneur.  Being an artist.  Being a consumer.  Being a business builder.

There are other attributes that are important.  Consistency.  Humility.  Patience.  Focus.  But finding how to be moved, then harnessing it and living it, is about the most important.

Love you guys!

What’s New from the Warnken Family

by Byron on December 15, 2018

  • Our hermit crab, who Gibson named Junk Macamole (we call him Junk for short), is still alive.  We bought him in August
  • Moses turned 3 months old two days ago
  • We’re in New York City this weekend.  You guys really seem to dig it.  We went to the top of the Empire State Building today.  We wrote a bicycle cab down 5th avenue today.  It felt like the most unsafe thing I’ve ever subjected you guys to.  Gibson fell asleep.
  • We saw Ellie, Gibson’s classmate, randomly on 6th avenue today.  What are the odds of that?
  • We had 27 people over for the Warnken Thanksgiving this year.
