The title alone should tell you I had breakfast twice at a Village Inn while we were traveling last week. It's got to be one of the greatest places for a good solid, tastes-like-home-cooked breakfast. And, since I had already had my annual physical I went for something you don't find in the East...a chicken fried steak with gravy.
Well, it's Saturday morning and I just found a great quote from sportswriter, Bill Simmons. It says it all and needs absolutely nothing else from me, except to wish all of you a spectacular weekend and time to do a little "what-if" day dreaming about your life and business.
Three of the four most important lessons I ever learned in life came from my stepdad:
1. The only person you can count on in life is yourself.
2. You can't be happy with someone else until you're happy with yourself.
3. Don't lie and don't break your word.
(Note: The fourth lesson came from my Aunt Jen, who taught me, "If you're interested in a girl, always meet her mom because all girls end up eventually turning into their moms, with no exceptions."
I found this quote in Dance first. Think Later by Kathryn & Ross Petras. It's a great little book if you're looking for some fun inspiration now and then. I like to read through a few quotes every morning, but the key is to take a minute or two and think about what's being said, not just read it and walk away.
