Some Old Man Tips…

“Life is too short not to enjoy it”-  find ways to enjoy!

“Your most valuable natural asset is your own gut instinct; trust it”

“A man who dwells on his past, robs his future”

“Don’t waste time on things you cannot change”

“Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.”

“Pay no attention to what the critics say.  No one has built a statue in honor of them.”

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.  Suck it up and enjoy the ride!

Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

When in doubt, just take the next small step. And then some more. (Action is the cure for doubt)

“Conventional wisdom is almost always wrong”  A wise man makes his own decisions, while an ignorant man follows public opinion.
