I'm just home from seeing Colonel Chris Hadfield (a very happy birthday present from Himself ).
I could listen to the man for as long as he had a voice. He was wonderful and funny and ...wonderful.
He said two things that have really stuck with me. The first is: Consider your next decision. That's all that is ever important, it's all that matters. Your next decision shapes your life. Life is made of 'next decisions'.
Secondly: You learn more from failure than success. It's okay to fail, it's good to fail, that's how you learn.
Sigh, I do admire that man.
