Eli 20.11

Eli 20.11 was named team MVP at his hockey banquet last night. He also received another award through a complicated and convoluted process that I can't mention at this time (but it's very prestigious). 

It's hard to think of a better way to end a competitive career in a sport. 

I was talking to him earlier this week about how he recognized at an early age that success wasn't a state. This is parallel to humans not being states, either. He wanted to be great at something, and he didn't care how good he was at any particular point, because he was never satisfied. It's been that way with everything he genuinely cares about. It's all a process to him, and understanding that has made a huge difference in his life, and it continues to make a huge difference every day. 

I didn't teach him this. We sort of taught each other. It's had such a big impact on my life, too.
