End of Week Links and Thoughts

- Loving the US Open at Pebble Beach. I've been able to play there three times in the last 4 years, so this is really cool. No. 7 and 8 are two of the greatest golf holes in the world. - You can read the article that Gabe Lyons and I did for Neue Magazine on the future of Church conferences.

- I've been a Lakers fan since I was little, so pretty pumped about the big win on Thursday night. Glad Derek Fisher got another one- really like him.

- Sporting a new pair of glasses these days. Needed some extra power. Call me four eyes.

- Great interview with Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett on the Charlie Rose Show. Talking about the Giving Pledge, a new campaign asking the most wealthy families in America to give away half of their wealth in their lifetime.

- Great new podcast from Andy Stanley: When Less is More.

- This next week is the big Super Early Bird Deadline for registering for Catalyst in Atlanta. Get in early and save big.

- Bucky Balls are now available in Gold, Silver, and Black. Love these. The best item I've found for a creative to have on your desk that helps you think clearly. Much better than a stress ball!

- Been reading Gary Vaynerchuk's book Crush It. Great read for entrepreneurs and leaders in general.

- Hilarious post from Tyler Stanton on his blog regarding some up to date tips on flying. Love it.
