Note to Myself!

Today, I was challenged to write myself a note to express the best advice I have based on my experiences over the past 76 years. What a challenge that was! As I thought, I came up with many ideas and I could make this note into a book and I realized that would be a waste of time and resources.

I remembered some of the best advice I ever got and that was "less is more" so here I go:


  1. Be careful with your expectations, both for yourself and others!  
  2. Say what you're thinking (not a personal attack) because you have experience and a voice and others deserve your "A" game.
  3. Never take anything personally!  You have a choice.
  4. Be yourself.  You don't have to be somebody that others think you should be.
  5. Perfection is not the Goal because it's not possible!!
A conversation with myself can be very helpful. Let's see how good I am at listening to my own experiences.
What about you?
  • What experiences do you want to share with yourself to influence the next 10 years?
  • What life do you want during the next 10 years for yourself and your family?
  • How good are you at listening to other's experiences, especially yourselves?
  • Listen well and notice what's possible!!
