Today would be Babe Ruth’s 118th birthday. In honor of the birth of one of the greatest ballplayers to ever live here are a few words to live by, from George Herman Ruth, Jr himself.
“Don’t let the fear of striking out get in your way.”
Quick Shots: As I mentioned before, I finished Captivating a week or so ago and have moved on to How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie. I’ve also picked up Beautiful Outlaw, by John Eldredge. I read this month’s Imprimis essay last night. I’ve selected the French Silk Pie recipe I will be making this weekend (finally), and the desk is coming along wonderfully. I hope to post the full write-up on the woodwork tomorrow night since I want to get the finish work done on the desk.
I’ve still been able to get in a workout every day so far this year. We identified another new species of bird the other day – the American Goldfinch. And I’ve been pouring a lot of energy into work so far this year. So I’d say I’m still on track.
Finally, one last quote to chew on, from another great man who shares today’s birthdate.
