Enjoy Every Day

Ted Rheingold just passed away. He was an amazing guy beloved by many. Endlessly joyful, inspiring, and loving.

His autoresponder (typos and all) is one for the books, and like great poetry, worth reading over and over.

My cancer (ccRCC, metastic) has gotten the upper hand and I’ll be
 putting all my resources into managing it.
In my stread, please keep these very important messages in place:
* be good to each other
* enjoy evert day
* wanting is suffering
* The journey is still the destination, now more than every
* the trend of purpose is coming like a tidal wave, get out a heard of
 it. enjoy the ride. die fulfilled.
* Reframe your thinking of “what your career can do for you,” into
 “what can your career do for others,” and wonderful, meaningful work
 awaits you.”

Enjoy Every Day.

Ted — thank you for the gift of you.
