As a parent, you want to know that your kids are learning the values you are trying to teach them.
The other day, Tonka came up to me and said, “There are four things you say all the time.”
- “Leave it all on the field.”
- “Never Stop Marketing”
- “Go big or go home.”
My thought was…”If this is what they’ve learned from me, then I’m doing ok.”
I did explain that, there are times when it’s better to actually “go home.” Knowing the difference takes time and wisdom, but overall, I was pleased.
I should say that there was one more saying which she attributed to me: “I love you. Now leave.”
That’s what I say to them when they come into my office and begin talking…while I’m on the phone.
Still, overall…this works.
