Remembering that Ill be dead soon is the most important tool Ive ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

So we take a lot of pride in that. Its really on us to turn this thing around. I think this last month weve done just that. Weve pointed ourself in the direction that we want to be, and I think were starting to head towards that. Right now were in a nice rhythm.

Pride was his life force; for us it was a live nerve that he could teach us to brush. One stroke, a good practice, and we could tingle for days ... First, he found the pride in each of us, then he taught us how good it could feel. What he was ultimately after was for every one of us to learn to light our own fires and glow our brightest.
The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all Ive got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.
