Ask questions... (So what if it's stupid.)
Ask for directions... (It saves a lot of time.)
Ask for a raise... (Go for it, chances are, you're worth it!)
Ask for forgiveness... (It's a lot easier than asking for permission!)Screw the net, Surf the backcountry!

Never engage in a battle of wits with people who are unarmed.
Your body is a temple. Eat well, exercise and make turns.
Don't hate the playa, hate the game.
Finally, be proud of who you are, unless you're a total f up.

Best parking strategy timewise is to pull into the first available slot and walk.
On average, 10 seconds of time is saved v. cruise to find the closest.
On to general advice:
Pay attention to the numbers. Numbers and math will find the truth faster that any other method. (I wish more business managers did this instead of going with the fad of the moment or thier gut & greed)Good runs when you get them.

80% of life is showing up - the rest will take care of itself. When in doubt: go!
Live out loud. Dare to be yourself.
Pick up hitchhikers in gore tex . . . they oftentimes turn out to be damn cool people and good ski partners (note: this could backfire . . .)
Utilize random connections . . . the world is incredibly small.
Take time to get to know someone before trying to influence their decisions. Corallary: don't be overly influenced by people who haven't taken the time to appreciate who you are and take that into consideration before dispensing life advice.
Ride a bike. It's good for your head, heart, and skiing muscles
Life is to short to deprive yourself of coffee and cookies.
And yes, women are all crazy . . . that's what makes us so fun!
Cultivate your true friendships - you know the ones . . . the girls you know that understand your madness and love you for it, the ones who validate your insanity, and can make you feel less crazy when you're about to lose it!

From my dad: "Don't eat the yellow snow."
From my grandpa: "Pick it up with your hands.. it ain't shit."
From my uncle: Ask someone a question and shut up. When they finish answering your question, don't speak. People invariably dislike silence; they will start talking again and will usually divulge way too much information. When it's over, they'll thank you for being a good listener and a great conversationalist.
- Do not let a woman know she can control you. Do not cause her to think (even mistakenly) that you love her more than she loves you. She will lose respect and attraction for you.
- Never follow fear when making decisions. Fear makes you run and backs you into corners.
- Don't waste your time telling people what you want. They don't care. They only care about what *they* want. If you want to convince someone to think the way you do, you must get them to see it's in their own best interests. Don't argue, don't tell them they're wrong, and don't prove you're right.
- Don't lie. Don't cheat on your significant other. You have nothing without your integrity.
- Buy real estate.

Leave work at work. Don't even think about it from the time you leave the door until you walk back in the door the next work day. Don't let your job define you.This touchy-feely Kumbaya shit has got to go.

Don't confuse work with life.
If it's not right, get it over with. There won't ever be a 'better time'.
Compromise on the little stuff, hold your ground on the big.
Don't hesitate.There's nothing better than sliding down snow and flying through the air.

Date a girl of similar family background. If you're accustomed to being (financially) comfortable, and she's not, LOTS of shit goes down. Because you are coming to EVERY situation with a completely different frame of mind.
Much easier to tackle stuff coming from a mutual perspective.Days on snow 06-07: 3

When buying new gear, drop it on the pavement on the way to your car. You didn't buy it to hang on the wall.

I like this.
Last year or something I bought my extremely broke friend a new snowboard for christmas. A bunch of us chipped in on it.
I have never seen anybody so happy in my life. I'm serious.
First words out of his mouth (after he said "are you kidding me?") was "I promise to try and break this board every single time I use it. I will try my best to snap this thing in half every run I take"
I liked that too.Buy nice things here.

Remember: Being at rock bottom means there's only one direction you can go.
