The one real goal Baby Boomers should aim for

Love Bob Costas’ shirt and tie combo for the final night of Olympic Track & Field this Summer. Looks like I can go back to matching up colors myself, without Cheryl’s input…

  1. Jeff,

    And any goal less than that is low-balling yourself. Amazingly, you never hear anyone say out loud, “I want to be mediocre in life and view life as a drudgery.” Yet, in reality, that is what many do.

    I used to say, “I can’t be that way – I am a type-A personality” or “I can’t be that way – it is my Christian work ethic I was brought up in” or something to explain why I don’t settle for giving my best in life. But the bottom line is simple – every day, it is still a choice, not something out of my control. I can either choose to do my best or choose to just do the bare minimum. And I know it is a choice, because sometimes I fail.


  2. Bob, your honesty sets you free. Be amazing. Find your passion in places where it’s waiting for you to notice.

    Often, the most beautiful things in a forest are not the trees themselves, but the small, inconsequential things on the ground.
