(April 28, 2016) “You Gotta Put the Big Rocks in First”

On this podcast, Del Walmsley uses an analogy from an important piece of literature from his past to emphasize prioritization especially when life has got you down. In so doing, Del makes no attempt to sugarcoat his own situation, as he details overcoming physical ailments, resetting his mental outlook and managing the rigors of corporate ownership. Pushing further, he highlights a shrinking middle class that is the result of a multitude of trends. But, in spite of it all, the theme of this show is hope; “you gotta put the big rocks in first,” then the rest will fall into place.
