Rules for the long Road

Some tips from John Morgridge on the last day of class!


1)      Don’t try to do it all by 35

2)      Enjoy each job – each stage of life

3)      Listen but don’t always be looking – opportunity is random

4)                 Wait 24 hours

5)      Don’t put negatives in writing

6)      Learn to forgive – others and yourself – don’t carry baggage

7)      Invest in friendships & a good marriage

8)      It’s OK to just be a member – to start

9)      The art of small check giving

10)                 Set annual mental and physical challenges

11)   Ask questions – be curious

12)   Its often more important to do the right thing – than do the thing right

13)   Make sure what you want to be is what you want to do
