DISCRETION IS A CAGE WITH VELVET BARS
Each morning, we all face the decision whether to take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill. The first is hard-true and the second easy-false. The Red forces a man to hike up the rocky path toward the EQV, while the Blue lets him mosey down the smooth trail to Mascot-life and chronic Sad Clown Syndrome.
A man’s first Red Pill is the toughest to swallow because it causes Disruption to the status quo in the form of Movement. And while it doesn’t get easier, it does get better. The second, third and thousandth Red Pill is just as tough to swallow as the first, but that initial Movement gives birth to Acceleration which leads to Momentum and Momentum ultimately leads to joy.
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
2 TIMOTHY 4:2
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings. Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing
It takes two flints to make a fire.”–
–Louisa May Alcott
“Collaboration allows teachers to capture each other’s fund of collective intelligence.”
“I invite everyone to choose forgiveness rather than division, teamwork over personal ambition.”
“Remember, teamwork begins by building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability.”

A once self professed “not a runner” who used to get winded on a warm up mosey. Fast forward 16 mos and he has completed a 1:44 1/2 marathon, 23:06 5k, top 10 finish in a triathlon sprint and a strong showing at Ragnar Alafia. Pincher is a true HIM and epitomizes what it means to work hard and achieve results. We are honored to have him amongst the Suncoast Pax!
