John Amaechi - Success Talk & Being Tall

I can really identify with this talk by John Amaechi, as I'm sure many of you will too. He speaks about his childhood growing up being so tall and different from other kids in his hometown.

He is now a psychologist, executive coach and also an introvert. He has a lot of other amazing things in his bio, but I don't want to spoil it for you if you don't know of him. If you are tall and introspective it's well worth the 20 minutes of time. I imagine we'll see John on a TED Talk sometime…

Tall People Video

Just ran across this video of 3 tall people and one little person calling out some common stereotypes that tall people face. The little guy running in and taking a picture is probably the funniest part.








Kudos to Kaufmann Big and Tall for doing a little funny social video…

Tall Office Chair - The Search - UPDATE with Solution

Search for the best tall office chair

So I stop looking like this guy everyday



So I'm looking around at buying a good office chair for my home office, but find that most "tall" designations are for people 6'1 and taller. Nothing against 6'1 people, but I'm a bit taller than that at 6'11".



That extra 10 inches of height and 300+ pounds of support needed means that…

Kevin Duckworth



Sadly, I have just learned today that one of my favorite basketball players has passed away. Kevin Duckworth was a 7' center that played most of his 11-year career with the Portland Trailblazers. He wasn't the greatest player but he worked hard and smiled doing it. I still have a lot of his all-star basketball cards from back in elementary school when I first started collecting them.



This is an article from ESPN talking more about him.…
