What is the best advice you have ever received? Stick with a job or task no matter how hard it gets, as a long as you are learning new things.
What is your favorite quote and why? “Remember who you thought you were.” Priorities and goals change. It can be informative to periodically reexamine how they’ve changed and why. What did I get right? What did I get wrong? And how can I use that information to improve?
What is your personal philosophy? Do it yourself. Play some music, build a bookshelf, brew your own beer, change your own oil, make your own recipes, learn to program something, plant a garden, start a business. If other people can do it, how hard can it really be?
When you are not at the office, you can often be found doing what? Catching up on a dizzying list of home renovation projects.
My dream vacation is: anything that involves family, friends, and an unobscured view of the ocean.
