Excerpt: "Show up on time, because to be late is to show disrespect. Remember the words regime and regiment are not interchangeable. Get a dog because cats are lame. And every once in awhile, put something positive into the world. We've become so cynical these days and by 'we,' I mean us. So do something kind, make somebody laugh and don't take yourself too seriously."
