On the occasion of my 30th birthday I was feeling introspective, so I thought it might be useful to myself and hopefully someone else to chronicle a few of the observations I’ve had and lessons I’ve learned over the years. That thought gave birth to the series 30 for 30: Reflections on Life at My 30th Birthday. 30 thoughts for 30 years.
