Steve and Lily

Steve and Lily

Tue, Nov 21, 17

I identify with longing. Within me lies the restlessness that makes one do impractical things (starting a business for one). This urge isn't uncommon. I think most identify with it. What impresses me is when someone finds a way to channel that energy into something that offers endless challenges and opportunities for growth.

One of those people is Steve Franks. Steve was kind enough to take us aboard his sailboat Lily Girl in Dana Point, CA a few weeks back. We decided to make a video and talk to him about what makes sailing so essential to him. One part that resonated with me is his use of systems on the boat. So much of a well-lived life is the introduction of great systems. The more I implement process and reflection into my own life, the better outcomes I have. It isn't sexy, but there's a certain harmony in what may seem rote. 

Oh, forgot to mention Steve sports a couple of our new apparel items in this video. If you have a chance check our new Slub T-Shirt and Waxed Cotton Parkas. -Ryan
