“I got up every day for 30 years. I tried to keep doing things over and over and over and it led me somewhere. If I keep getting up for another 30 years I’ll be 60 and will retire and likely sit there and wonder about what I just spent 60 years doing. After wondering what I was doing for 60 years for 30 years I’ll be 90 years old and wondering what I should do now. We live in the future now and I guess that’s whats going on when I’m 90. My intention was always to make it to 100 so I guess I better keep going.”
