Advice from The Elders

There is more research from Priceless Legacy, a company that turns interviews with older adults (elders) into life stories in print or video format. An analysis of its projects shows that the top five life lessons shared by people ages 65 to 104 are:

1. The simple things matter most.
2. Humor and time cure most pains.
3. There's more satisfaction in giving than getting. Service to others is the most satisfying activity.
4. Choose your spouse carefully. It will be your most important decision.
5. Work hard and in a field or role that you enjoy.

My Dad would add: Plant things that will last longer than you, to give back to your Mother~Earth.
