QUOTES FROM EXPERTS:

“43. Work on your physical condition every week–even if it’s just a little bit. You’ll be better prepared to keep up with your wife when she turns 50 in 2018 and wants to go on adventures all over the world to climb mountains, explore caves, scuba dive, cycle, and heli-ski.”
Jay Wilkinson, 55 Lessons For My Younger Self

 

“What’s your life going to look like if it continues down the current path? What if it leads to further distance from your spouse? Further distance from your kids?”
-Curt Mercadante, Have You Put a Price Tag on Your Relationships?
