https://img0.etsystatic.com/025/1/9599471/il_340x270.624985880_kj5d.jpg

This will be the last show before I officially become a father. Time to go out with a bang.

Hence, I ramble for an hour and change about what lessons I wish to pass on to him. Enjoy!

The lessons:

  1. Give the world value
  2. The world doesn’t run on your feelings
  3. Treat women as equals but don’t brown nose
  4. Make yourself happy alone
  5. What isn’t earned isn’t appreciated
  6. Just because it’s normal doesn’t mean it’s right
  7. Be kind, not nice
  8. Practice active thinking
  9. Practice delayed gratification
  10. Have compassion for others
  11. Learn through rejection
  12. Learn from the past, live in the present, prepare for the future

 

Live From the Grand Canyon
