Another <del>Day</del> Year Older

and deeper in debt. Hmmm, actually, no. Turned 41 this Tuesday without a financial debt in the world... :) Oh, sure, we've still got our monthly bills and all, but everything we own, we own free and clear. I can't suggest it highly enough to anyone. If you're struggling with the money thing, Dave has some good ideas to get you on that path.

Anyway, now that I'm officially a year older, any words of advice to you young 'uns? Sure:

  • Unless taking a risk is likely to physically harm you or others, lean towards taking it. My personal ratio of regrets for things undone versus those done is heavily tilted towards the undone side of the ledger. Someone feel free to remind me of this every time you see me!
  • What gets measured, gets improved. Have something you're coming short on? Measure it. In early June, despite half efforts to counter my expansion, I tipped the scales at just shy of 230 pounds. I started an online Weight Watchers membership June 15th, just used their handy dandy mobile app - in other words, no meetings or cardboard tasting food - and weighed myself yesterday at 202 and change. Missed my goal of sub-200 by my birthday, but not by much...
  • Play a little every day. I don't care if you're 8 or 88. Life is too short, no matter how much time you have left...
  • Oh, and as always, wear sunscreen...
