About five years ago, I came home from a walk with my wife and wrote down this list. I found the scraps yesterday when going through some flat files.
Most of it I still agree with. (It’s always a bit disappointing when you agree so much with your former self — good thing I no longer believe in linear progress!) Except for #13. You don’t have to play “The Game,” whatever that is. There are alternatives. (Start by reading Thoreau.)
I’d sit down today and make another list, but really, that’s why I wrote Keep Going. (“Sisyphus mowing the lawn” became “Every day is Groundhog Day.”)
