Past it, or the Best is Yet to Come?

Henry Clay's monument is in the Lexington Cemetery in Lexington, Kentucky.  It is the biggest thing, in a rather old cemetery.  Henry was in Congress around the time of the Civil War, was known as a great orator, and I believe he ran for president.  

There is a quote in my office, Write Something Worth Reading, or Do Something Worth Writing About.  I recently presented a webinar at work.  After it I had an email from a prominent scholar in the field, I have read two of his books, asking if it was okay if he borrowed a few of my power point slides for a presentation he was preparing for.  I was surprised, that I had written something, done something, worth noticing.  I guess I am not past it yet.  

Is your best yet to come?

    I always look forward, so yes, I hope so.

  2. I have no idea about myself but congratulations to you. What a compliment!

  3. Isn't it great when you realise that someone out there appreciates you? It's likely that many people do but most don't bother to mention it.
    My best is definitely yet to come. There's no point in anyone dwelling on what they can't do any more (ski, sit on the floor, run, remember everyone's name, the list goes on.....). The trick is to make the best of what one can do now, and do it well.
