What have I learned?

So I began my foray into the world of blogging by sharing just a little of “what I’ve learned” with you (see version 1.0 in an early January 2008 post). I hope to continue adding to this regularly for a couple of reasons. First, I believe we learn so much everyday that it becomes important to share with others some of our important lessons. Second, and perhaps more importantly, I don’t want to forget all the stuff I’ve learned so I need to write it down! Behold…version 2.0. Herein, I thought I’d share just a few of the lessons shared by others (plus one from me). Enjoy. And thanks, Jack, you’re right!
