My dad has always set a healthy business example for my sister and me (and in many ways for my mom too), but he's not a prolific preacher like the dads we see in movies. He's keen on encouraging smart choices that work for each individual's unique lifestyle (must be where I get that from!). But, every once in a while, he'll drop a gem I find oh-so-comforting, encouraging, and helpful. A few years ago I was dealing with a particularly complicated tax dilemma and after I rambled about my taxman's suggestions and my research and asked for his advice, he calmly looked at me and said: "You know, it's a marathon, not a race. Whatever you do, it will be fine." And it was. It always is. What's the best advice your papa has preached?
