So it’s looking more and more to me that this will be my final season.  We are planning another trek to Palm Springs for three months in early 2020.  Our realtor there is continuing to look for a home and hopefully we’ll find something in that 3-month period.  This should leave me free to do some off-season work in either SoCal, or perhaps someplace else since we can hook up the Casita to the Hummer and roll around the globe.  I think we’ll be attending the Long Beach Grand Prix in April.  If you’re a DW guy, maybe we can get together and do a brain-exchange.

Dang DP. What will you do without humidity?

I guess the summer in Palm Springs you will have your facemelter. It gets friggen hot. A buddy of mine owns the restaurant on top of the palm spring aerial tramway. Scary ride if you've never been.

At least I think he still owns it, this was 15 years ago.

—Well it’s doubtful we’ll be in Orlando for the USAF clinic, this year.  We’re gonna do the wine country, LA Grand Prix, probably the TCM moviefest, as well as house hunt.

—Don’t you be out in that mess, Bill.

Deb hates the humidity worse than me.  At least I was raised in it.  Regardless, prolly time to hang it up and enjoy stuff.  Got toys and tools and things to play with.

Perfect.  VW vans are perfect for the mid-engine design.

I dunno, Bobby.  The idea of selling just one copy isn’t all that appealing.  ;D

Really, what it comes down to Bobby is that there simply is no market for it.  I don't mean a "market" in terms of $ and cents, but a market that would apply it.  Too many coaches make excuses as to why "that wouldn't work here," "I can't do that," "They won't let me...," etc.

Dave Cisar is a great example.  Coaches come on here and ask "How do I build a program?" and DC gives them an A, B, C, D instruction list and they respond by saying why they can't do all of those things.

True enough for most coaches. That's the way it is for any other coaching book/method out there. Or "self-help" books, for that matter. But there will be some coaches that take the information, learn it and apply it correctly. Now you have a small handful of coaches who apply your principles, making their programs better. So instead of 30-40 kids you make better in one school in one season, you are now making a difference with 300-400 kids scattered across the country.

You could also throw in a clinic with a purchase. That might be worth whatever price you put on it.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.- Marcus Aurelius

Sounds like you are making an excuse for not writing a book 🙂 

Don't forget, there are also a lot of people who praise Dave and what he has written.  He has helped me improve greatly as a coach.  So have you.  I would definitely pirate a bootlegged copy of your book.
