sonofabeach96

Time for this week’s Share Your World from SparksFromACombustibleMind.

Here are her questions for the week:

Did you have to help out with chores when you were growing up?  If so, what were you assigned to do?

Yeah, I sure did.  My parents divorced when I was pretty young, so being raised by a working, single mom, I was a “latchkey kid” and had to contribute.  A little of it all.  Cleaning, laundry, garbage duty, dog duty, and even simple cooking.

Have you ever researched your family tree?   What do you know about your family’s roots? 

A bit.  On my dads side, I’m predominantly Danish.  On my moms side, some Italian and mostly English.  Like most Americans, or humans in general, for that matter, I’m a Heinz 57 genetically.

What’s your cure for hiccups?

I promise!  This works…every single time.

Get glass of water and…

Here Are 10 Rock-Solid Life Tips

Featured

Danny

I love lists.  I also love striving to be a better version of myself today than I was yesterday.  For that reason I’ve written 10 Rock-Solid Life Tips I try to live by:

  1.  Be careful not to burn bridges as you never know with whom you might interview one day.
  2. No one can make you want to be great.
  3. Try not to have someone else’s name in your mouth when they aren’t around.
  4. There is never a wrong time to do the right thing.  Conversely, it is never the right time to do the wrong thing.
  5. If you could develop one skill, develop the skill of self-awareness.
  6. The world will take from you as much as you are willing to give it so be careful how & where you invest your efforts.
  7. Be slow to speak, but quick to listen.  You’ll learn more.
  8. In all things seek to add value to the world around you.
  9. There are “reasons” and “excuses” so be certain to understand when each is in play.
  10. There’s a difference between knowledge and wisdom.  Develop wisdom.
