Life lessons from Chubby (my dad) and other smart folks I’ve met on the road.
Chubby warned me that if I lived my life right
it would be filled with mistakes.
Over time I learned that he was resoundingly right.
He told me that my only real risk in life was “you might not have the courage to go for it enough and get it all done.”
But Chubby said, “Greg, when you live a ‘go for it life,’ you’re going to mess up, time after time.” He said people make mistakes and lose money, things, jobs… and then let that ruin their life.
Dad warned that one of the hardest things many never learn is not to look back. Chubby reminded me that a minute old mistake is history. Yesterday’s mistake is ancient history.
Chubby reminded his son to never forget,
“Regret is the past crippling the future.”
