10 Essentials From Dad

It has been a long time since I left my parents’ home, but some lessons still resonate in the way I conduct myself as an adult. These particular essentials can each be attributed to my dad.

  1. If I said I was going to do it, I’m going to do it.
  2. Pay the taxes owed on ALL income received – even cash payments.
  3. When it’s broken, fix it.
  4. When it’s not needed anymore, sell it to someone who can use it.
  5. Grow tomatoes each summer.
  6. Be my own best teacher.
  7. Don’t leave the door standing wide-open.
  8. Shake hands with a firm grip.
  9. “Put some elbow grease into it” for a good clean-up.
  10. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
