Boulder’s best lesson
There are many, many great things about living in Boulder. Quite a few of these have been extolled in the press. Just check out the “Best of Boulder” list on the city’s website. Boulder is a town of great athletes, brainiacs, foodies, artists and artisans, do gooders, and just generally healthy and happy folks. People say that there must be something in the water. I think it just might be a tad more radiation, but there’s a more definitive common thread between these sometimes disparate groups. The people of Boulder are driven. They don’t think about doing something some day or spend a lot of time day dreaming. Nope. These folks get things done. Step 1) Idea. Step 2) Execute. It’s what I love most about Boulder, and it most certainly rubs off on you.
When you’re surrounded by people who are living life to the fullest, you come to realize that it’s just not that hard. You just have to put one foot in front of the other and do it. The only trick is listening to your mind and body for signs of burn out and ignoring the voices of self-doubt. Most important of all, you have to jump while you have the fire, because dilly dallying leads to hesitation which leads to inaction.
Thank you, Boulder for helping me be the best possible me.
