Ø "Susan", his wife
Ø Mental Toughness, earned it in Ranger School @ Ft. Benning, GA
Ø Self Belief, if you do possess it, it is hard to convey confidence to others
Ø Networking outside what most would consider your normal circle, meet new people. Listen & learn from them
Ø Information & knowledge always win, never quit learning was what I took away
Ø Become the Asset / Keeper of the knowledge, but then share it with those willing to learn from you
Ø "Mr. Johnson / "Susan’s" father / great scientist, worked with Einstein, worked on weird & unique things for the GOV back in the day
Ø Be structured and disciplined, I correlated this to Jim Rohn & John Maxwell about being intentional
Ø Be connector of people / Similar to my theory of connecting X & Y to get to Z
Ø Do not be afraid to spend some of your earnings, buy some things you want & like, otherwise, you can’t take it with you, basically is what I took away
Ø Never look back. "Bob" described it as being a successful bank robber, having the confidence of living and never having to look back
The more time I get to spend with high quality people like "Bob", the more I know I will never be through soaking it all in.
Maybe this sparked a though or two for you, if so ... Enjoy.
