This is a beautiful sentiment from one friend to another. We only knew Jody Sherman through his company ecomom.com. But the story shared here paints the picture of a human who loved life and tried to make it better for those around him. He seemed to find that balance between fighting for his own dreams while also helping others fight for their own.
This served, for me, as a powerful reminder to slow down. Too often we get locked in heads down mode, running as fast as we can towards our goals. Poke your head up and take stock. Appreciate those around you. Ask how you might help others achieve what they want in life. Find that balance between striving for future success and being present to enjoy the adventure with the friends who are exploring with you.
Thank you Mark Suster for sharing.
