Value Outside Work
My favorite things to do as a kid were. . .
Compete in team sports at the playground, and play basketball with friends in my driveway under a single spotlight until our parents dragged us inside for the night, only to be at it again the next day.
As a big kid, I like to. . .
Spend time with my family, play golf with my buddies, and attend college football games during the fall.
One of the things I hope to do. . .
Attend the final round of The Masters.
