mark fallows  My story of a start-up life. Changing football, loving running, technology and art. Curious at heart. A Scottish soul in NYC.

Obsessive. Dedicated. Focused. Selfish; the founders characteristics. I've struggled with the fact I've devoted all my time to my business to serve football fans but not made time to apply my experience and energy to help those less fortunate. Tonight that changed. I joined @imentororg . One call per week and one meeting per month is considered consistent memtorship for ambitious but disadvantaged school kids in Brooklyn and the Bronx. It's the least I can do. They seek more male mentors so if you have time and the will, sign up.

Augmented Reality will be across all our lives by 2020. Market projections range from $50-120bn so it's time to pay attention. If you want to start an AR project I suggest you talk with Candy Lab and meet the founder Andrew Couch. Smart and passionate, Andrew has a really interesting back story. I reckon you'll be hearing more about @candylabarinc .

Recovery- who needs it. When you're in the pursuit of progress - it's easy to press on, keep pushing and performing,
But ask any athlete and you'll learn that high achievement owes as much to recovery as training in their routine.
My weekend recovery came in the form of a 50k ride, the space to think and contemplate new ideas. I'd bet we could all benefit from more planned recovery. Disagree?

Running over the Manhattan Bridge tonight I stopped to appreciate how much I value living in this great city. Once home and relaxing over a beer I had a call with great friend who recently launched an artisanal home decor ecommerce site @justtwoquestions. As we shared our entrepreneurial challenges, and frustrations we both agreed that a persistent focus on delivering value to our users is daily practice. Saying over a beer is easy, staying focused on that is less so. But no one ever said this would be easy.

Extremism, a poisonous and polarizing word in today's climate. But listen to @neyal99 talk about 'progressive extremism' the word assumes a positive and magnetic attraction. Let's face it, most of us live in a comfort zone. Whether breaking a habit, making an impact, or driving change, extreame attitudes, focus and behaviors are required. Transformation is hard but with positive, practical and progressive extreme effort, real impact can be made. What's your progressive extremism?

Repetitious often torturous training is not something you relish at the time but practice and
preparation pays dividends when your race begins. It applies to everything we do and can be summed up in the James Cameron quote: 'Hope is not a strategy. Luck is not a factor. Fear is not an option'.

I think it's fair to say most of us spend our time chasing our goals, aims and ambitions. Today I heard an interview with Tony Robbins where he said “Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant.” It's an interesting pivot. Appreciate the journey and let the destination take care of itself. Maybe we all need to realign our use of time.

When I saw this painting by Sol LeWitt it made me think about the demands of startup founders, but also anyone navigating modem living.
We need structure. We need to follow a path but need to be adaptable to change. We need to be multi-layered. We need to be colourful. All this in balance creates a sense of freedom.
Today I heard @erikwahl talk about structure creating freedom and this painting came to mind and it captures that sense of structure but adaptability and flexibility we need to navigate our world. Get the face paints out!
