    Jun 7 2012: 1) Listen. Always stop and listen. Even if it is just the wind blowing thru a tree, take a moment and listen.
    2) Observe. Amazing what a difference it makes when you can notice little details (not to critique, but to complete the image)
    3) Separate. John at work and John at home are very different. Dont mix the worlds or you will burn out.
    4) Learn. Never ever stop learning. Like Neil deGrasse Tyson says: “know more today about the world than I knew yesterday"
    5) Pets: Simple fact, my dogs and cats do more to teach me unconditional love, devotion and patients. And no matter how bad a mood I am in, they walk up to me, put their chin on my lap, look up and me and say "get over it". Never underestimate the power of a dog or cat to put life into perspective.
