5 Minute Summary


I'm still working on my new stories. My goal is to have one up next week. While you are waiting, I have a quick thing to post...













"It's hard for me to listen to others when all I can hear is the sound of my own voice. I have to remember that the moment I think I know everything is the moment I don't know anything at all. Often patience, silence, and a reasonable amount of humility have brought me more understanding than I could have ever imagined. Part of why I am this way is because I have cystic fibrosis. It's made me a better man."


I wrote this in five minutes and it's probably one of my favorite things I've ever written. A short, sweet, and to the point combination of some of my favorite quotations. These are the principle ways I learn about life. I just wanted to share them with you.

Listen to each other, learn from one another, be respectful.

Peaceful Things,

Josh

  1. Hey Josh, you're not supposed to have this depth of wisdom and insights until you're like 80. This resonates with me at 43, but I don't think I could have articulated it so well. Good to be in life with you.
