These Next Two Weeks Will Be Self-Indulgent – To Help You Think, Smile And Be Grateful

No, it's not Air Force One, but it is 1st Class.

The Oval Office and Official White House communications. Apple’s Cupertino headquarter’s or Starbuck’s Seattle headquarters, everybody has an HQ. However, most of us never consider our lives as having an HQ. I never did. Until I became a parent.

Insight: Some insights in life come late. And they change everything for good.

  1. Some insights must come later in life as we would not be ready for them when we are younger. Can’t learn calculus before the times tables… Or something equivalent.

  2. Patty, the paradox is that many of us think we know it all by the time we reach young adulthood, and again after we reach, say, 30 (or even 40).

  3. At 50 plus I know there is so much learning yet to come. Though I have learned not to ask, “Am I there yet?” For the answer is an obvious “No.”

  4. It’s a good thing I’m 31 then! 😉 just kidding, of course

    That’s awesome that Chapin got to travel 1st class! I think it’s safe to say that it was a direct result of having your HQ in order, too.

  5. Craig, Delta was very helpful in orchestrating the surprise – switching my seat for his (way in the back). He also got a nice dinner and I got a small bag of peanuts. 🙂

  6. Patty, a plane trip can become a routine thing for some, like riding in a different car to a camping trip.

    Like many things, it can become relative.
