Are you doing a good job at life?
June 12, 2019

AWhen I was in high school, trying to decide what to do with the rest of my life, it was important I not enjoy it too much.

Yep.

That’s because by then I’d learned that anyone who did was a little bit of a goofball.

Years later, when that approach hadn’t worked and I got the chance to start over, I wished for a class on how to make a life transition. Imagine my surprise when I (1) found it, and (2) discovered the theme was: “If you’re not having fun you’re not doing it right.”

Upending my worldview was an easy sell, considering the spectacular wasteland my life had become. Now? Katie says she hopes to be as silly as me one day, which is the best report card I can imagine. Next up, one that came really close.
