An email from SL:

 [At the age of 51] I decided to make a real change in my life by not having a TV or internet/computer. For once in my life I could stop being a news junkie and open up a book. I grabbed The Pledge and it fell on a page… about becoming a better person. I read the seven bullet points again and again. It really struck a chord within me and it became my daily mantra. “Focus on opportunities, not problems” has really helped me get on with my work. When you said nothing else you do will bring you peace of mind. Money won’t. Success won’t. FAME won’t, it feels like it is going to prepare me to cope better with my crazy career…. Very powerful words Mark. You should be proud!
