So it turns out that if you drag a coupon through the snow using a rope, two things can happen. If you’re lucky it slides across the ice like a nice concrete sled. But if it starts tumbling, that’s basically how you build the bottom of a snowman. A heavy snowman. Pick your sled wisely.

COT: I talked about a story I read last night. My wife showed me and I can’t find it online to post a link – I’ll come back here if I do. It was about the guy who started the Young People’s Chorus of New York. Really inspiring story. He grew up poor and with no friends, but dedicated himself to music. In his twenties he started a choir for young kids that didn’t have money to do anything organized. But if you would show up he would take you. A few decades later they’re a world-class group, and he still takes kids from all backgrounds, races, social groups, etc. So he’s impacted thousands of kids lives, doing something that he found meaning in. Lots of good lessons there.
