The best advice my dad has ever give me is that you have to make your own happiness. This advice has driven me to achieve the goals that I want and to always try new experiences.
My dad has given me many pieces of good advice that I've remember over the years. I imagine he's given me even more good advice that I don't remember, or failed to listen to entirely. One tip that I always remember, though don't always follow, is "when in doubt ask your mother". I imagine I will continue to hear that for many years to come.
My Dad has bestowed a lot of priceless advice upon me over the years. But, as a recent first-time home buyer, these words of his are always running through my head - "measure twice and cut once". This rule has come to the forefront during many home projects and always rings true!
