The History of Mantras

Jumping back a few days to the 2011 Mantra, I was asked how the Mantras started & any past ones. Dad isn't entirely sure how the tradition started, but attributes it to the normal "dadisms" that were floating around that eventually turned into a yearly theme.

And here is the complete list of Dad's Mantras:

  • 2006- "If it were easy, everyone would do it."
  • 2007- "No more guilt trips."
  • 2008- "Press the easy button."
  • 2009- "If it's not delicious, throw it away."
  • 2010- "Live positively."
  • 2011- "Take time to recognize & appreciate beauty."


  1. I saw a resolution today that I would like to propose for 2012 - Stop talking about it and just get it done.
