1. The most important part of your life is ahead of you.
2. Everything you do matters. And, it matters forever.
3. What you focus on will increase.
4. Experience is not the best teacher. Reading is. Other people’s experience is the best teacher.
5. “In desperate times, much more than anything else, folks need perspective. For perspective brings calm. Calm leads to clear thinking. Clear thinking yields new ideas.
