I am adding a new blog to the list that I follow consistently. Disclaimer: I know this fellow blogger. I am adding Schaefer's Blog to the list. We both graduated the same year from Air Force Academy and I just recently began sampling his blog. He also writes for The Art of Manliness so he is the first to make my list twice. We didn't know each other all that well at school but I remember him being a good dude, and I have really been enjoying his posts lately. I hope you enjoy his blog. Here is a sampling of some of his work.
When I first created this blog, I was just coming out of a season of intense and enriching mentorship. I had recently graduated from the Air Force Academy where I had been surrounded by great teachers and officers, and through my local church I had made relationships with several quality individuals that poured their lives into me. So, it was only natural that most of my content would be focused on the various lessons I had learned throughout that time.
Since then, I’ve moved into a new season of my life. And though I’ve still maintained close contact with many mentors, my interests and passions have taken new, unexpected twists. That’s life. As many of you have noticed, I’ve posted very little content over the past several months. Though much of this has had to do with my crazy schedule as a C-17 pilot, the other has to do with a lack of passion for the subject matter I’d originally built my blog around.
Lessons in Skilled Living implies just that - each blog post imparting a life lesson. Well, for now I’m out of lessons, at least, I am not that interested in writing about them.
What am I interested in writing about? War, coffee, books, strategy, Christianity, technology, philosophy, the Middle East, John Boyd, education, movies, the outdoors, flying, Africa, being a dad/husband, music, wine, entrepreneurship, economics, foreign policy….just to name a few.
