What is a “Participant?”

Author. Check.

Speaker. Check.

Participant. Huh?

What does that mean? It’s a fair question.

The original header for this site read, “Author. Speaker. Observer.” When I read it back to myself, I didn’t like that. Not that there’s anything wrong with watching (people watching is a fantastic pastime!). It’s just that I’d rather be known for “participating.”

Life is meant to be lived. We’re meant to experience things. And, I hope that, someday, when my time is up, I’ll be remembered not only for helping people and doing some good things, but also for having done some pretty cool stuff (and lots of it). I hope I’ll be thought of as having been one of life’s great participants (as both a leader and follower).
