I wrote the following note to one of my graduating seniors I coached this past year. I suggest it’s good encouragement to all of us as we navigate transitions and seek to live life well.
Remain at your core the high quality person of character that you are.
Be considerate, friendly, poised, curious, clever, fun.
Practice healthy disciplines—physically, mentally, spiritually.
Treasure good friendships—sage wisdom from mentors, young men that you can pass along inspiration and challenge, and with a few true friends whom you can truly know and be known by in life’s journey.
