A plumber with a heart

“Acceptance and Commitment Therapy” uses the device of the funeral oration. Imagine you’re on your deathbed, and writing what you want your favourite great-grandchild to say in your memory. Will it be the amount of money you made? Or will your last moments focus on the good you did during your life?

All that matters is what we take with us when we die, and what we live behind in the hearts of others.

On that basis, British plumber James Anderson is doing better than most people — but as well as all of us could.

Please read his inspiring story. Once again, it demonstrates what human nature is really like, when you remove the blinkers of greed.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
