After tutoring several midshipmen at the Naval Academy on this assignment, I decided to write one myself. Here’s how you do it.

Great video. I suggest writing a mission statement in my stress management book “Forget Your Troubles: Enjoy Your Life Today” – it’s an important step that helps people really focus on what they want to accomplish with their lives instead of feeling overwhelmed by so many choices and all the demands on their time.
Keep up the good work, I enjoy your posts.

Do What? Bring more warmth and laughter into this world.
To Whom? Anyone I meet.
In What Ways? Through a twinkle in the eye, a welcoming smile,
funny but true stories, spontaneous silliness,
heartfelt hugs.
