Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to Do It by John O’Hurley

Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework First You Have to Do It coverWho are you? On the surface it’s a seemingly innocent question that O’Hurley attempts to answer.

As in It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, O’Hurley again shares pearls of wisdom from the life lessons he has learned. The anecdotes range from whimsical to solemn. A one sided conversation with his young son William allows O’Hurley to delve into everyday situations.

“Yes, life can change in an instant, and sometimes life is unexpectedly unfair. It is not what happens to us in life; it is what we do about it… the unfairness of rejection is simply protection in disguise.”

“To accept a goal means you accept the responsibility of preparing for its accomplishment.”

“The paradox of this dream of inadequacy is that, it only occurs in the minds of people who want to succeed. Underachievers sleep peacefully.”

“We claim not to have time, when, ironically, time is all we truly have.”

Who are you? The question is as simple as it is profound.
