As I was “living the dream” (cleaning the house) earlier today I heard an interview with the World Renown Chef Jacques Pepin. One of the questions the interviewer asked him that really hit home was “How do you want to be remembered?”
Hmmmm. How do I want to be remembered and by whom? I am sure that it really depend on your life stage and what is most important to you. Google it and you get about 51m results. It seems a lot of people think about this.
I especially perk up when I hear this asked of people that are looked up to in this world. Some by status others by money and sadly, some just because of their name. But I was very surprised and comforted by his answer… “as a good Father.”
That’s what I’m talking about!
Honesty may be the best policy, but it’s important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

A retentive memory may be a good thing, but the ability to forget is the true token of greatness.
