For the record, what a company DOES is way more important than what the CEO says. My advice to clients: Act better, Be better, and only then take a stand.
I held myself to a Mahi-mahi salad and two corn chips.
Insight: when food is better for you the pleasure of eating lasts longer.
Politics is based on compromise. Religion is based on absolutes. Both are essential components of our polity. Where we get into trouble is when we confuse the two – or mix them.
Trust no food or beverage made with high-fructose corn syrup.
Another nice thing about retired life: stepping outside each morning at 7:55am and hearing “The Star-Spangled Banner” playing over the loudspeakers at Naval Base Ventura County in the near distance, singing along under my breath.
It sounds corny, but it is a calming and edifying way to start the day.
Indulging in a late-night hot pot without having to constantly check email, worry about a 6am call, or think about what I need to get done when I get back to my hotel is an unaccustomed luxury.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, and keep those steak-and-mushroom pies coming!
Of all of the watches that I can afford, this one remains my favorite. I’m now on my third Casio ProTrek. No, they’re not legacy watches: they last about ten years or so, even with regular service. But the last one I owned I literally wore everywhere, including some shallow scuba dives, and it only needed service when I took it below 20 meters too many times. They’re solar-charged, glow in the dark, are lightweight and tough as hell.
Don’t tell my wife this, but I’ve never been a Swiss luxury watch kind of guy, and the Apple Watch just seems like overkill. Between my Casio ProTrek and my Garmin Fenix3, I’ve got all of the timepieces I’ll ever need: geek watches for the trip, trail, and workshop.
