December 26, 2006

—Jim Rohn

I received a couple great gag gifts for my 60th birthday. On my desk in the office was a T-shirt that has these words emblazened on the front: “Never trust anyone over 70.” And the card, from my friends Gregg and Susan Clancy said, “Welcome to the new sixties!”

Of course I worry about being too cocky at my age, because. . .
