Last week, after an 18-month battle with pancreatic cancer, my dad passed away peacefully in his sleep.  I will eternally be grateful for the impact he’s had on my life, the legacy he’s left behind with family and friends, and the extra time we had with him over the past year and a half.

I’m thankful that I had a chance to tell him specifically the impact he’s had on my life, values and career.  Over the past week I’ve written about six of those specific lessons on LinkedIn.  Below are links to those write-ups.

Lesson #1: The importance of integrity

Lesson #2: Invest in relationships

Lesson #3: Value, pay attention to and prioritize the little things

Lesson #4: The importance of hard work

Lesson #5: Be humble and give credit freely to others

Lesson #6: The importance and power of laughter
