“No longer should we view ourselves as the center of the universe. Instead we should recognize that we are but one tiny part of an enormous whole.”

“My eldest daughter is like 50-something. So I was a naughty boy when I was young. But I have to be a dad to all different ages. I’m a different dad to my 4-year-old than to my son who plays hockey who’s 21, and my daughter who’s 35, who’s got a daughter.

*Gather all of your kids and all of their moms around and listen to some Rod Stewart. Call your mom and ask her, “Have I told you lately that I love you?”

*Dr. John Sperling believed that lifelong employment with a single employer would be replaced by lifelong learning and employment with a variety of employers. There’s nothing wrong with lifelong employment with a single employer. There is a sense of comfort that goes along with this. As I type this, I’ve been a public school teacher in Central Florida for the past 24 ½ years. I’m just now realizing that I need to get out of my comfort zone if I ever want to do what I really love in life with enough money to thrive while doing it. This is why I keep typing.
