Another father, another son. The dad is a friend of mine and told me this story.

Report card after report card, this son’s grade average in high school was C.

Low C.

Dad thought the boy could do better.

So he told his son:

"If you get C grades, you end up living a C life.

If you get Bs, you live a B life.

If you get As, you live an A life.

What kind of life do you want to live?"

Update: grades are up.
