Squirrel!

In Blog by Jerad Hill2 Comments

I am easily distracted. There have been times I self-diagnosed ADD. The problem is that we live in a world with no shortage of distractions. There is more than just something for everybody, there are dozens of somethings. To make it worse, I love technology. You and I both know that the tech world moves fast and there are always new bright/shiny things coming out every day. Adding to that, I …

Deep Netflix

In Blog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

One of the issues I have had with Netflix is the short list of categories for browsing movies. I like to browse categories in hopes of discovering a movie I have not seen. I am the same way when it comes to books on Amazon and audiobooks on Audible. I may not know what I am searching for until I see it. I am sure many of you are similar …

I saved my son’s life

We decided to take our three kids to the snow. It turned out to be a quick snow day as a blizzard came in and froze our faces. Liam’s last sled run almost took him off a 15-foot drop. I forget how fast sleds go with little kids on them. Liam flew right by me and I took off running as I quickly realized his sled was not stopping anytime …

Office Workout of the Day – OWOD

In Blog by Jerad Hill0 Comments

Since I was a teen I have always cared about fitness. Over the years, my level of motivation has changed as I have aged and entered into new life chapters. After I turned thirty, I started to realize that I need to stay more on top of how I take care of my body. Over the last five years, I have battled with acid reflux and an underactive thyroid. Due …
