***this is reprinted with permission  Thank you Austin, my thoughtful son, who commented, “I peaked early.”  Side note: He is not a paleontologist– A successful businessman that has developed many of these skills, although the room cleaning is still a work in progress. (his wife agrees) 

  1. img_0240How you think is everything.  God will help always.
  2. Decide upon your true dreams and goals to be a paleontologist.
  3. Take action. Defend your country.
  4. Never stop learning.  Do crosswords daily.
  5. Be persistent. Work hard.  Do your homework.
  6. Learn to analyze details. Study hard.
  7. Focus your time and money.  Use your money wisely.
  8. Don’t be afraid.  Innovate. Be different.
  9. Deal and communicate with people effectively.  Talk clearly.
  10.  Be honest and dependable.  Take responsibility.  Clean your room without getting reminded.
