In a weak moment, I have written a book. a€”Margaret Mitchell This book is a multilayered creation that touches on a wide array of topics, many of them drawn from personal experiences. Indeed, you the lucky reader will be blessed with enough material for at least three books within one cover. Why would I want to write such a multi-themed book? It wasna€™t my original intention. Maybe Ia€™ve learned an important lesson and wona€™t do so next time. Like many older folks, I wanted to share what I have learned to be true and useful and couldna€™t seem to stay with a single topic. Ia€™ve lived long enough to confirm an important realization: the gleanings from a well-lived life are at least as important as knowledge gained vicariously through reading and classroom attendance. But I think most people dona€™t fully appreciate the value of their life lessons and end up taking most of them to the grave. I want to counter that pattern and use this book to share as many of my gleanings as I can. I also recognize several imminent dangers facing this nation and our planet and feel compelled to share these concerns. Just as important: I want my wife, children, and grandchildren to know more about who I was and who Ia€™ve come to be. I hope they will have occasions to use some of my wisdom.Instead, they asked me what I thought we could do to make the operation run more efficiently. ... I would tweak the apparatus as if I were tuning my Ford pickup truck and would make notes as to what seemed to improve the production rate.
