“Go with the decision that will make for a good story. “
I found a list of 45 fatherly words of wisdom at RECCE ROOM and that one is my favorite. It ties into something I’ve personally said in many dire and unpleasant moments:
“This is going to be a really funny story… later.”
Glad to know I’m not the only one.
There are a few other classics in the list:
“No matter their job or status, everyone deserves your respect.”
“A man does what needs to be done without complaining.”
“Never stop learning.”
“If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.”
“Luck favors the prepared.”
And the most undeniably true of all:
“Buy a plunger before you need a plunger.”
Words to live by.
