Ian Garmaise introduced Lawrence Miller, who was a wonderful addition the conversation. Talk turned to wisdom. I asked him, "How do you live a good life?"
He turned the question around, asking, "What is a good life?"
That made me think about what I value and what I want.
One of the things that I want to improve in my life is integrity. I feel guilty about thank-you cards I haven't finished and e-mail I haven't yet responded to. A friend recently passed away, and I hadn't visited her or finished writing the card. I think that going back and taking care of all of these things would be the best way to spend my time. I want to get into the habit of keeping my task list sorted out. I'll do the bare minimum I need to fulfill my other responsibilities until I've (re)gained a sense of integrity.
I should make that happen. When I do, all other things will be easier.
