Toadstool took the PAX on a leisurely Indian Run around Aksarben as the rain began to pour.  Puddles everywhere.

 COT – “Do something every day that you don’t want to do. This is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.”  Mark Twain
 He wrapped up the COT by challenging the PAX to get out of their comfort zone.  The only way to grow in our careers and personal relationships is to do the hard stuff.
