Older. Somewhat wiser. Still committed to learning, growing, and owning my own opportunity areas, despite my recurring resistance to this shit. You know what I mean… Acting on these areas is painful at times, and takes balls, but is truly worth it long-term.
I’ve unfortunately learned that the common sense defense is a commodity regardless of age. Thus there exists a plethora of pretenders out there. But, I’ve also learned that taking the high-road is the best high one can undertake in most cases. The benefit may not be immediate, but it’s a certainty, sooner or later.
Wisdom is demonstrated, not proclaimed.
