Your life isn’t margaritas on a beach in Jamaica. That happens now and then. Those are exceptions.
Your life is how your wife greets you at the door when you come home every day. Because that’s, like, 10 minutes a day.
Your life is how you treat each other at the breakfast table because that’s an hour hour and a half or an hour every single day.
You get those mundane things right, those things you do every day. You concentrate on them and you make them pristine. It’s like: you’ve got 80% of your life put together. These little things that are right in front of us, they are not little. That’s the first thing: they are not little. And they’re hard to set right. And if you set them right it has a rippling effect. And fast, too. Way faster than people thing.
