About

Making the choice to Be Better

Six months ago I started writing letters to my children. The idea was simple. I wanted to share some of the most important lessons I’ve learned over the last 40 years. My hope was that my stories could help them live a better life, both today and in the future.

I ended up with over seventy letters covering topics from attitude to humility to buying stuff. As I wrote these letters I had to reflect on my life and my actions. What did I really know? Was I living up to the words on my screen? Could I claim completion of each lesson?

Then it hit me. Every letter I wrote showed me how far away I was from the finish line. It’s not possible to master these lessons, only to know them and strive to be better. For every one, I can think of times when I didn’t do enough or didn’t make the right choice.

There is no perfection in life, only opportunities to get better. Everyone stumbles and that’s OK. In the world of technology, we call this concept, ‘beta’. It’s a description that acknowledges a product is going to have problems and will get better with time. The difference is we never leave the beta stage in life. Every day there hundreds of chances to improve, grow and learn. It wasn’t until I finished this project that this hit me. I can see now that life is best lived in an infinite beta.

As I think of new products that can help remind us all to be a little better every day, I will add them to the shop. If you have thoughts or feedback please don't hesitate to reach out.
