Life is about choices. Make choices (especially when they are the important ones) when you are rested and sober.

Always learn from both the good and bad choices in life.

Even more important is to accept responsibility for those choices, because you did make them.

Your education begins when you get out of school.
The mistakes you make that cost you the most are the one you remember.

I will never take credit for my adult children's accomplishments; neither will I take blame for their shortcomings.

The problem with Darwin's Theory isn't God, it's that too many of the unfit survive.

Build good friendships and feed them often.

Don't keep people in your life who don't value your marriage as much as you do; especially in-laws.

Where employment is concerned, do what you love and live within your means. More is better, but money isn't everything. Being happy is. You can pay me like sh!t or treat me like sh!t but not both. Keep a six month F#$! you fund and don't be afraid to use it.

Say "yes" more.

1. A conclusion is when you got tired of thinking.
2. Always better yourself and help those that you can.
3. Respect your elders no matter how wrong you think they are. They have earned it.
4. Live the 10 commandments to the best of your abilities.
5. Faith, Family, Friends, in that order will promise you a rich life.

I cant always choose who I do business with, but...

I can ALWAYS choose How I do business with them.

If I want to go somewhere I have never been, I must take a road I have never traveled.

There is a reason the windshield is bigger than the rear view mirrors. The same is true for why our eyes are in the front of our head and not in the back.
Its much more important to see whats in front of you (the future) than whats behind (the past) you.

The School of Hard Knocks can be a very effective education

The worst mistakes I've ever made happened when I already knew so much about a particular subject that I didn't have to research it.

It's extremely difficult to win an argument and the other person's respect at the same time.

Take advantage of every opportunity. No one gets so many that they can afford to waste even one.

Failure is an option, just not a very good one. But it is also, perhaps, the best teacher.
