I want to be a better husband, dad and businessman and I am far from perfect. Some of these writings are random thoughts and others are to illustrate ideas, discoveries and life experiences. I hope you enjoy it.
I'm in Chicago right now, and I took a cab to the place where I wanted to go. I'm always interested in talking to cab drivers because these guys have a lot of time to think about life. They also see people at their best and their worst. They're probably among the wisest on earth.
My cab driver Asian - I think Japanese. His black hair looked too black (probably died) but in the rear view mirror I could see that his face was smooth and unwrinkled.
We said our basic niceties, and somehow he mentioned he was 72 years old. I couldn't believe it - and then proceeded to ask him a few things about his family.
Then he started sharing with me some of his wisdom that he had found over the 72 years of being alive. Nothing was earth-shattering, but nonetheless his timing was perfect because I need a reminder of this stuff just like all of us.
Here's what he said (in abbreviated form).
Now this is a guy I would love to spend more than 10 minutes in a cab with. However our drive was done, we bid eachother farewell.
Great wisdom from a taxi driver.
