Tag You're It
I got tagged by Ben Bach, one of my favourite people under age 25. I'm somewhere around double his age, but don't tell him that. Here's what he said on his blog:
"Troy Worman is a super cool guy. Among other things, he’s a prolific blogger and my newest mentor. Phil Gerbyshak tapped Troy (as well as Liz Strauss, Jodee Bock, Ted Demopoulos, and Kammie Kobyleski) to tell us five things about him, and in turn Troy has tagged me (as well as Stacy Brice, Hans Henrik, John Koetsier, Mike DeWitt, Jennifer Warwick, and Steve Portigal). "
Now, I don't know any of these people, but if they're friends of Ben, then they're friends of mine. So I guess now I'm supposed to tell you five things about me :)
2. I love good design. I like things to serve a purpose. If it doesn't solve a problem or serve a purpose, I don't want to own it. Hence the yard sale idea. When you have a family, your set of problems changes daily. I like to keep things loose and flexible, thus we don't tend to own things too long. We finish using them and out they go. Keeps the energy and creativity high.
3. I used to love romance novels. Now I've read too many of them and they've all started sounding the same. But I read them anyway. It's one of the the few activities where I don't have to solve some kind of problem in order to be able to do it. I read novels when I want to totally chill out. They can't be too deep either, or else I have to solve problems while I'm reading them and that totally defeats the purpose. It's my equivalent of watching T.V.
4. I love entrepreneurism and I love working with entrepreneurs. They're just some of the most interesting and creative people around.
5. I love God and he loves me. This statement may not be politically correct, but some things are important to say whether you offend someone or not. If love isn't the centre of the universe and the reason why we do things, why would we bother getting up every day? Faith is simply a relationship with God whereby we accept his love for us, allow him to energize our lives, look for ways to share this love with others, and basically seek to not get in the way as his goodness and love works miracles in people's lives every day. Keeps me going.
