Words to Live By

I was recently contacted by a 12 year old who wanted to interview me about ThereminWorld.com and how running it as a hobby has impacted me over the years.  One of the questions was “If this was your LAST interview, what advice would you pass along?”  Here’s the advice I offered along with a few additions I’ve considered since then.  

I won’t lie and say I am successful in living by these guidelines every day, but I find it helpful to think about them regularly and check in to see how I’m doing.

Hopefully some of my 7 blog readers will find these useful or inspiring 🙂

Love everyone. 

Never be afraid to try something new. 

Failure is not the end of the road, but rather a gift of knowledge of what doesn’t work and an opportunity to try again. 

Save for the future. 

Surprise someone else with kindness every day. 

Learn about eating healthy food and take care of yourself. 

Don’t panic.  

Never stop learning.

Always speak the truth, but never out of spite.

Ride the bus.
