Clay, this is a great “what I’ve learned” article. I confess, I had a split-second fear that you had joined the self-help mob, but nah! (The title should have reassured me. It’s lousy click-bait. Don’t change it!) You laid out lessons you’ve picked up over the years, gave great examples, and ended with a great upbeat conclusion and exhortation. I bookmarked it for later — I’m thinking this would be a good thing to share with some nieces and nephews. (And FB!)
