I often think about my current situation. Employed, married, father of twins, stepdad, 3 cars, 5 years same job, federal employee, podcaster, talking at a major conference at a major resort. Then I think back just a few years ago, homeless, depressed, defeated, uninspired, broke, hopeless. It makes me humble, it makes me hungry, it makes me wait for the other shoe to fall. It makes me wish I had learned some lessons better, well maybe not learned better, rather, incorporated those lessons better. Who knows where the next 10 years will take me. Yes 10 years it took to get here, in 10 years it will be 20, and I will be halfway through a mortgage. I will have lived over half of my life. What comes next.
