T. Boone Pickens passed away on September 11th. Prior to his death he wrote up his final message which is well worth your time to read.
His message included those words to the left from the poem "Indispensable Man" by Saxon White Kessinger.
The 10 key principles to his success he lists are something worth going back to and reviewing on a regular basis. And in his final analysis - what did he leave behind?
"I left and undying love for America, and the hope it presents for all. I left a passion for entrepreneurship, and the promise it sustains. I left the belief that future generations can and will do better than my own." - T. Boone Pickens
May the road rise to meet you Mr. Pickens. And thank you for your final message. Memento Mori.
