Over my life I’ve had a lot of wonderful experiences and people in my life that I have learned a lot from. I’ve also learned a lot about myself just from spending many quiet moments alone probing, questioning, and searching what it is I really believe and value. It’s weird I’m sure, but I have this fascination and love to read books by people who are known to be dying soon or have died. It’s here where I’ve learned about the “unspoken” areas of a persons life. It’s not the areas that you hear discussed around the water cooler at the office. It’s the unfiltered truth rather than the self-aggrandizing, posturing and positioning done by some good people in self help books and blogs.
I say that to introduce you to this written perspective about life and career that slapped me in the face by Linds Redding a few months before he died last year at age 52. I thank my friend, David Airey for sharing it with me.
