Rules I’ve learned through living

penknife-657712_1920I recently celebrated a birthday marking a somewhat large number. The occasion got me to thinking about the things I have learned in my time, and I realized there were a few “rules” I tried to follow. They are:

1. Don’t panic: Keeping calm is the first step to solving any emergency or problem.

2. Carry a pocket knife: You’d be surprised how often it comes in handy.

3. Your family is always your family: They’re the people you will see your whole life, so you better learn to live with them.

4. Do more than what’s expected: Nobody remembers the average employee/player/friend.

5. Never stop learning: The minute you stop learning, you get left behind.

6. Pray thank you: No matter your circumstances, remember to be thankful for your blessings, because there is someone who has less.

Working in the newsroom, I had a front row seat as the internet just about killed newspapers. I knew I had to either evolve or risk becoming insignificant. So I changed. I learned how to build websites and blogs, and I used social media to go to my readers. Now the goal is to use what I've learned to honor God and serve my community.
