#3: I remember something Doris Kearns Goodwin said about LBJ: After he retired from politics, he had nothing that made him happy. His wife and daughters had cultivated their own interests while he'd been laser focused on his career and he was lonely. He lived just 4 years after he left the White House. He was only 64 when he died, but looked and acted much older. She said the lesson she learned from him was to always have something all your own, separate from family and career, something that brings you joy. It'll enrich your life in so many ways.

#10: I know, I know. I keep trying to remember to do that.
