    1) Money means very little in the grand scheme of things.
    2) Group think is a dangerous thing (avoid the party line/be yourself).
    3) Tip well and treat EVERYONE the way you want to be treated.

    2) In suffering there is transformation. It is my job to determine how I allow that suffering to transform me. Similarly, the right way is not always the easiest way.
    3) You can't choose your parents, your siblings, your grandparents, or any other family members - except your spouse. Take the time and make the effort to choose the right person as your spouse.

    2) A job's not worth starting if you're not willing to finish it.
    3) The value of learning to do something yourself is irreplaceable.

    1. Communicate well. Be able to have conversations with Bill Gates and the bum on the corner. Treat them the same.
    2. Laugh a lot
    3. Be able to communicate with your kids' friends. Make them feel comfortable and welcome.
    No wonder you and Mr. Cat get along so well. You could have been describing him with each of those traits.
