  2. Had another George Gershwin.
  3. Could agree upon the basics.
  4. Had medical exams like those on Star Trek.
  5. Were just a little more stuffy.
  6. Had a large supply of great tailors.
  7. Listened to more jazz and less rap.
  8. Took a 30 minute walk once a day.
  9. Recognized how often we are surrounded by quiet heroism.
  10. Stopped trying to impress someone.
  11. Considered those who carry the heaviest burdens.
  12. Embraced the beauty of the unexpressed thought.
  13. Had an abundance of gratitude and a drought of envy.
  14. Sought to lift up more than tear down.
  15. Frequently paused to appreciate the mind-boggling miracle of life.
