Craft Talk: 

Tony Mark Simon was going to introduce today’s speaker, Mr. TBD, but had to pivot and introduce Chuck Shreffler, our resident swimmer, wood turner, litigator, and Notre Dame alumni.

Chuck brought us up to date on his family, who are spread out around the country and serving our country.

Chuck’s topic of the day was the book written by Jordan Peterson on “12 Rules for Life, an antidote for chaos”.

Several members were familiar with the author and his rules and recommend the book as well.

An excerpt of 3 rules are;

  1. Stand up straight with your shoulders back.
  2. Compare yourself with who you were yesterday, not with who someone else is today.
  3. Tell the truth-or, at least, don’t lie

For the rest of the rules, read the book or better yet call or email Chuck to register at 612-872-8000 or chuck@chucklaw.com 

Looking ahead
