Being good at anything comes down to these four simple words.
KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID.
One of my grade school teacher a very long time ago. Told me those four words. I was doing something stupid. Back in them, days smartass kids like me got a bitch-slap to the back of the head. Followed by stop being stupid, DeBerry. It was my favorite class; marine tech. It was so much fun. I made a fiberglass boat.
He would tell everyone. Keep it simple. Then he would add, you hear that DeBerry, Keep it simple, stupid.
He was a good teacher.
As I sit here being reminded by Andy Williams. That it’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. I think about next year. That’s right. 2019 and beyond. Exciting things are happening. Middle child graduates! Youngest will be 10 and I HIT THE HOLY SHIT I AM FUCKING 50!
Hitting 50 isn’t that a big deal. I figure I have 10 to 15 good years before I hit the fuck this shit I am too old. Meaning I have to get my head pointed in the direction of my goals.
Brings us full circle to the title of this post and those four words.
Content and keep it simple, stupid.
Anyway— BLAM! Content.
