Gone Fishin’

I haven’t blogged in a while. There hasn’t been anything exciting lately. I work. I sleep. I eat. I turn that food into poop. Repeat.

This weekend, I got to go to Mammoth and do some fishing with the family. It’s been about eighteen years since I’ve been to Mammoth. As you can see, I haven’t lost my touch.

Catching fish…like a boss!

This is a Meeting

You see, sales is like fishing. Sometimes you want to be active pursuiing your customer. That is lure fishing. Other times you just want to let your customer know you are out there, and wait for them to make their decision. That is bait fishing. You need to employ both tactics to be effective at sales.

Summer Things to Do

I have compiled a list of things that I want to do before the end of this summer. Please let me know if you would like to do any of these activities with me or have any suggestions of things to add to the list.

Fishing – There are plenty of good lakes to fish within a two-hour drive. I can get my old poles and equipment from my uncle. I might even take a day off to go fishing this summer.

Jet Skiing – I’ve done this once, but Michelle brought up the idea. Let’s go jet skiing. You can rent these bad boys right in Redondo Beach. It’s a lot of fun for a day.

Build Above Ground Pond w/ Hydroponics Filter – My hobby of fish keeping has not slowed, much to the chagrin of my girlfriend. I want to build one of these above ground pond boxes and create a biological filter that will grow plants while keeping the water clean for the fish. If anyone has mechanical skills, a bench saw, and a nail gun, you’re more than welcome to help me out.

It will look like this but not ugly blue.

Brew Beer – It’s been long enough. It’s time to brew my beer. Look what magically appeared on the list!

That’s a pretty good start to my list. I’m sure I’ll think of more things I want to do, but I want the list to be manageable with reachable goals. I’ve already got a photography class and a couple baseball games on the list of things to do.
