Dad Wisdom

Happy Father’s Day everyone. Rather than make a fuss of them today, I think they’d like it if we just remember to do things the way they taught us. In that spirit, here’s a list of things I learned from my Dad and a few other Dad’s I’ve come to know over the years.  We’re far away now but I feel closer to my Dad than ever; as I’ve gotten older I see that, as it turns out, he was right all along.

  • If a thing doesn’t work, it might be a good idea to start banging on it
  • Listen more than you talk
  • Be careful
  • Sorry people do sorry things
  • The more comfortable your couch, the more of your kid’s friends will end up sleeping on it
  • Take your time – whatever it is will take longer than you think
  • Keep in touch
  • You can always quit
  • Measure twice, cut once
  • Fires, trucks, forests, and tents can make almost everyone happy
  • Be nice to your mother
  • Making sure to be honest means you never have to lie
  • If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right
