One reader commented to me about something he had enjoyed reading in the book- something Doctor Mark had said about a conversation that happened while he was working on a ranch during a summer break from college. The ranch was a manicured, masterful development in rural Oregon and Mark said to the owner, “God surely must have been good to you,- your having such a beautiful place!” The owner replied, “Oh yeah? You should have seen this place when God had it.”
That actually happened. It happened to me while I was working in rural Oregon, so I put it in the book. There’s an important lesson here about only relying on the person you see in the mirror when something has to get done.
