How many hours of sleep do you need?
The limit does not exist.

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

Worst gift you’ve ever received?
My first apartment out of college was $400 a month but was in-between a prison and a mental institution. People ran away from both locations every other week and the cops would come by and tell us not to open our doors till they found the person.  To avoid being murdered, my mom gifted me an alarm system that had one piece that stuck to the door and the other to the door frame. If the two pieces separated, a siren would go off that could be heard on the moon. Apparently, glue made in 2005 couldn’t stand room temps above 75 degrees and this sweet apartment didn’t have air conditioning. The alarm fell off the door at 2am, the siren went off, I woke up and ran to grab a knife thinking “this is it, I’m about to be murdered.”

How many pairs of shoes do you own?

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Toilet paper: over or under?
2020 answer, I don’t care as long as I have toilet paper.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
