COT: Announcements: The Plague mentioned and encouraged that any PAX recovering from injuries to should post and modify as need (Q added you can also head to coffee for fellowship). Prayer requests mentioned and noted. YHC read short from Charlie Munger about inverting problems: “Invert, always invert. Turn a situation or problem upside down. Look at it backwards. What happens if all of our plans go wrong? Where do we not want to go and how do you there? Instead of looking for success, make a list of how to fail instead. Tell me where I’m going to die, that is, so that I don’t go there.” YHC explained that with all of the talk about New Years resolutions and goals, don’t forget to identify (and avoid) obstacles that may interfere with your goals. Closed with prayer. Coffeteria followed at Starbucks.
