Recent lessons, pt. 2

Added on by Spencer Wright.

More lessons from the past few years and beyond - these more personal than my previous post. 

  1. Few things feel better than getting consistent exercise, but few things feel worse than being told that you should be getting more exercise.  
  2.  There's nothing more fulfilling than setting someone else up to do what they love. Corollary: few things hurt more than to be denied the chance to do something that you're great at. 
  3. People will hate you for saying that having a baby is like having a dog - and for sure, there are significant differences - but that doesn't change the fact that it's true.
  4. Unless you have access to an actual soda fountain, you should add the ice cream to the root beer and NOT the other way around. 
  5. The ability to give advice well is a direct outgrowth of understanding and judgement; the ability to receive advice well is a direct outgrowth of humility and a sense of politics.
