For the last week, I’ve driving up the California coast with my wife and two children. We started in Dana Point and, as of this morning, are in Carmel by the Sea. We’re on to Monterey. Then, ending in Calistoga/Napa for a few days before heading home.
This has been an interesting week to say the least.
What have I learned? Quite a lot actually, but I’ll narrow it down to these 10 things.
That couldn’t be more cliché, right? But it also couldn’t be more true.
For instance, in a few short months, I will be 42 years of age. I cannot for the life of me figure out where the time has gone. I blinked and became my parents’ age – a parent, myself.
So, for the second half of this journey on earth, I want to try to remember and cherish every single moment.
Last week, a client of mine told me a story. He said, “I remembered the first Academy Award I had one, every time I won another one. Then, I didn’t win for a while and couldn’t remember what it felt like to win one. Jeremy, do not forget what it feels like to win one. And, more importantly, don’t forget how you won it!
That’s great advice, and I think I’m going to hold onto it through the remainder of my trip, my journey, and the time I have left.
