What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Years ago, a homeless man sat across from me at lunch. In the conversation, he asked me if I had ever read “The Four Agreements.” I had not. He said I must. I took this as a sign and immediately after lunch I bought the book that changed my life. I practice these agreements and teach my students to do the same.
