Return on Bad Luck
My wife and I had a bad event. She had a double mastectomy about ten years ago. There’s no way you could ever say, “You know, in the end cancer’s good.” You can’t say that. But out of that experience we came away with a life mantra: “Life is people and time with people you love.” And the more that we began to try to live that idea, and every day we remember that idea, and every day we remember it’s not about stuff or adulation or accomplishment—it’s about love and people you love and time with people you love—we are getting a high return on what was undeniably a bad event. It was a defining event that made us better.
