If you could get Mike Tyson to mate with Yoda they’d spawn something like Larry LaPrade; someone you’d want covering your back in a bar fight and a guy equally at home sharing a joke at a confluence of philosophers.
Taking on Larry as a coach has proved to be one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. You know how a teacher, a parent, or a friend can change the trajectory of your life in extraordinary and positive ways? That’s what Larry does.
Besides creating more hours in my day, I’ve learned through Larry to make those days more aware, more alive, more present, and more engaged. And it’s not all about me. It’s about my relationships and the values I honor — Larry is a coach who is focused on values — they are what motivates and what rewards.
Friend, Budda, priest, coach, brother, annoying voice in the back of my head — Larry has helped me find the Mojo I hadn’t realized I’d lost.
