The World According to Sean
I have learned many things in my life. Two of these lessons hold fast and true for me - one lesson I learned in school and the other I've always felt in my heart.
SCHOOL'S LESSON: Around 1932 Werner Heisenberg postulated that "...we cannot observe something with affecting the outcome ..." This is a very simple way of stating the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle which I learned while doing a minor degree in Quantum Physics. Why do I find this significant you might ask ? I am always conscious of this concept and have found in my work career that this statement holds true in every aspect of nature.
A LESSON FROM THE HEART: Even before I was married or even dating, I always had ideas about how things should be. Walt Disney said it best when he said "...a man should never neglect his family for business ..." which in some ways is equivalent to the ol' adage "...I work to live. I don't live to work ...". Above all else in my life, this has always been my number one priority. I think that more people need to take this to heart as well...
