Perfect timing for this thought provoking reflection. Thanks

This week Our CEO,..., retired young at 62 with a very successful career. Possible he had similar thought process as shared in this article.
BTW: I saw Mike Bruner win those Golds. I was so proud to see my fellow country man win and mad us feel great. Thanks for rekindling those memories.

Former senator Paul Tsongas shared an age old wisdom in his last speech "No one on their deathbed ever said, 'I wish I had spent more time at work.' (he died of cancer soon after)

Thanks for sharing such profound wisdom at an appropriate time.

Holy cow! Where do you find such amazing stories?
The NYT article had me stunned, and seems to me like Pulitzer Prize material.

The NY Times story by Karen Crouse (link inside the reflection section)reminded me of a line from Emerson "It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself."
I worked for 40 years before retiring. A few times in my life, some colleague or junior employee, and in one case my daughter casually or deliberately mentioned something that they had learnt from me or an experience with me that had inspired them. Those moments were inspiration and turning points from depth of doubt and down period for me. I was renergized. Rightfully said "Things that are given away are never lost."

A good read indeed! I'll ask my daughter to read the NYT article as well.☺
Happy Thanksgiving

It is always a refreshing experience to look back in your life to find people who had a positive influence on you and helped you achieve something, even you did not see in yourself. Worth calling them today if possible and thanking them !
