Thinking about the Future at a Funeral…

How was your weekend? I went to a funeral last Friday–my uncle’s dad passed away. It had to be a sad day for him, for sure, because now both of his parents are gone.

I did get to see a lot of family I hadn’t seen in a couple years, so that was really nice–I only wished it’d been better circumstances.

Anyway, let’s get to it.

The whole idea of a funeral and remembering what somebody said reminded me of something my brother told me he heard a while back.

The gist of the thing is that you should treat everything you say as if someone were going to be reading it years later in a history book.

That’s big thinking, I’d have to admit. What would you say? How would you pass along what you’ve learned? Would someone be able to get a good grasp of writing or anything else based on what you’ve said here and there?

It’s something to strive for, and I know I have a long way to go, in fiction, copywriting, and my life before I get close to that point.

How about you? Drop me a line in the comments–I’d like to hear your thoughts on this.

Until next time,
