In the anticipation of the arrival of a new tax deduction baby to our family, my wife and I have been doing some writing to present to the our child, who sex has not been determined but we have already settled on the first name Kendall (although the wife is starting to waver on the name with about seven months to go). She is keeping a diary of things that happened in the year of his/her arrival, I am writing some of the life lessons I have absorbed to eventually but into book form and hopefully guilt some of you out there into buying to help pay for baby supplies (I am an entrepreneur after all). As I work on pieces I will post them here, looking for as much honest feedback of its usefulness, and a little conversation on just how hard it was for y’all to learn these lessons yourself. Assuming you have actually learned these lessons.

Please leave comments as they come.

Book Of Kendall Rule #2: Don’t Fight For The Chance To Be Right

It is easy to see that there are plenty of causes to fight for, and many of them are worth fighting and sacrificing for. But it is never a worthy battle is your goal is just to claim the title of ‘being right.’

There are plenty of things worth spending your energy on than proving you are right to a group of useless non-believers. Being fair, being honest, being just, and just being are just a few things. Sometimes, it might be necessary to throw a fight to save someone from hurt feelings. Sometimes you have to take a dive to enable yourself to save face. The circumstances of your life will dictate which battles are truly important and which once are really just poor sparring sessions.

Save your fury of righteousness for the time you are going to need it. Because there will be times when the fight to prove you are right will be the most important thing for you in that moment. It may even prove to be career or life saving. But it is impossible to 100% spot on correct all the time and a complete waste of energy to pursue the winning stance in every argument.
