It was fitting that earlier this week ahead of mother's day Kevin Durant accepted the NBA MVP Award and thanked his mother as the true MVP. This video is a must watch. I'll admit that it made me tear up watching Durant describe what his mother meant to him in his path to become one of the NBA's best.
I've watched This Week in Startups hosted by Jason Calacanis since episode one. It's an invaluable resource about startups and entrepreneurship. It's also great as Jason is always able to get great anecdotes out of his guests. This episode was no different.
Guest Jerry Colonna was truly amazing and probably the most inspirational episode I've watched. It tops my list of other great guests including David Heinemeier Hansson (which I read the news on), Chris Sacca and Gary Vaynerchuk.
An awesome quote by Joshua Foer...
“Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next - and disappear. That's why it's so important to change routines regularly, and take vacations to exotic locales, and have as many new experiences as possible that can serve to anchor our memories. Creating new memories stretches out psychological time, and lengthens our perception of our lives.”
Extremely moving....Jack Hoffman, a 7-year-old kid with brain cancer, brought onto the field at Nebraska's Spring Game and runs for a touchdown.
Really great video of what happened in 2012. A must watch...
