Probably True Things

Dear Jack and Ruby:

Here are some probably true things that may help you sort out the world – whatever it looks like – in the times to come.

  1. People will lie – you have to love them anyway.
  2. People will present a front that has nothing to do with reality.  This is normal.
  3. You’ll have more distractions to keep you from being focused.
  4. Men and Women will both gold dig.
  5. People will not understand the world you live in-  you have to survive.
  6. These people might be your parents: my advice will be obsolete at some point in the future, but I’ll try my hardest. 
  7. I will disappoint you at some point, try to forgive me.
  8. I’m not perfect, and I hope I never claim to be.

The world is accelerating faster, I know that there will be more changes in the next 10 years than there were in the past 40.  And I know that that cycle will accelerate. The toolset we use: laptop, mobile phone, email, etc to communicate will be supplanted.

I hope that I can be of use and of service in the future. 


Your Dad
