One more thing

My mantra for complete and total self-responsibility is “It is what it is. It is what I have made it. It will change when I change”.  This is my statement of total personal responsibility. 

Character is doing the right thing when no one else is looking.

What goes around comes around … even if it’s on a very long, elliptical orbit.

Measure twice, cut once.

It’s Perspective…not Perception.

The message is the messenger.

Music is the ultimate slate cleaner.

If you’re not early, you’re late.

When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

If you absolutely must calculate something, do it in terms of percentages.

Freedom is never free.

At this point in my life, I am almost completely inner-directed.

I can only control my input. I have no control over the outcome.

To thine own self be true (thank you Miss Susan Baxter, my ninth grade English teacher, you set me free.)

And, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
