Not all good lessons come from dead greek philosophers. Here’s three things childhood friends said that have stuck with me over the years.
On being a good teacher:
Don’t ask did you understand?, ask did I explain myself?.
On a good marriage:
Never keep score. That’s not how the game is played.
On good parenting:
It’s a destination, so don’t try to get there in a straight line. There’ll be lots of course corrections.
