Never Put Off Until Tomorrow What You Can Do Today


The past few days I learned one of life’s hard lesson. In Ben Franklin’s words “never put off until tomorrow what you can do today”. I always thought of this in terms of work, not relationships. This Saturday I lost one of my dearest and oldest friends. My high school teammate and college roommate Richie Angelo passed away during a triathlon. It’s been a tough few days with lots of thinking. I have more resolve than ever to slow down and try to do the things that are truly important. I will try to be a better friend, a better father, a better husband. Not by providing but by my presence. It’s so hard to find something positive in a time like this but, I am going to use Richie’s passing as a lesson in love and friendship.  I did not talk to him enough or see him enough the past thirty years. We always talked about get togethers that never happened. We were both busy entrepreneurs with lots of irons in fire. However, that does not change the fact that I did not see him enough. If you miss someone, call them today. If you’ve been planning to see someone, see them. They might be gone tomorrow.
