Leadership, Life & Death

I just grabbed one of my daughter’s book : Tuesday with Morrie. It’s about a dying old man teaching life’s greatest lessons to a young man. It’s a must read book from her school.

I also googled this title and watched an interview Morrie Schwartz had with Ted Kople, former NBC Nightline  anchorman.

I was watching the video, then pushed pause to read some passages, then closed the book  watch the video. I did that back and forth.

“Dying is only one thing to be sad about”, Morrie said. “Living unhappily is something else”, he added.

“The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We’re teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it”.

Let me leave you with this video. Enjoy it. Think. Meditate. It’s about Leadership, Life and Death.

  1. Give your daughter’s school credit, this book should be on everyone’s must read list. I just hope that when I am faced with my final days, I can remember Morrie and emulate his dignity and courage.
