427. Good Versus Right

Parenting well is not about being right, but about being good. For instance, being right in a family disagreement — or any type of disagreement — is far less important than being charitable, upright, and true with those involved.

132. Friends

Friends are usually not the people who only tell you nice things, they are the ones able to tell you the honest things to your face. They are faithful amidst tension and unwavering in their commitment to your best. A friend is gracious, forgiving, and always encouraging you to attain your best.

Be and keep that kind of friend for life.

119. Experience

Getting work experience in a variety of categories is a good idea for many reasons, some of which you won’t realize until later. I suggest fast food, a desk job, manual labor, a restaurant server, a place requiring formal attire, and a place that makes you clean bathrooms. Paying your dues breeds graciousness.
