Personal philosophy (aka “Things my kids have heard me say a million times”):

Talk is cheap, action is everything.

The most important things always get done.

If you think it can’t be done, get out of the way of those who think it can.

Saying “I’m sorry” is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength.

If you can’t make time, don’t make children.

Life really is short. And the older you get, the shorter it gets.
