Since becoming a father, I think often about the legacy I will leave behind.
No, I don’t care about being some D-list Internet celebrity. (I don’t have the patience for the trolls.)
But, I have spent an absurd about of time getting “dialed in.”
And, in doing so, I’ve accumulated a vast repository of knowledge that’s mostly in my head.
My initial thought was to put it in a journal or write letters to my kids to pass my knowledge on to them but, on second thought, I decided that if I share it here others may benefit as well.
