Slide Every Time

When do you slide in Little League baseball?

Every time!

I learned that from coach Mike Slatin. Of course, form matters. Doing it right and avoiding injuries gives the effort room to succeed.

There’s a parallel path in life that I follow.

When do you take someone’s picture in public?

Every time!

Of course, form matters here too. Permission is a must. So is attention to technique, especially if all you have is a camera phone.

Please don’t listen to your social anxiety. Trust me, when you cross paths with a couple of cool dudes in monogrammed purple track suits in front of Gucci, they’re not going to say no to anything.
