My grandfather, Joseph Rosenblatt, was a great influence on me through my whole life. He flew around the world to be there for my birth and he died on the night we brought our first son home from the hospital after he was born.
I believe we were connected at a soul level.
One day, a few years before he died, I was sitting with him and my sister in their TV room, when out of the blue he shared this bit of wisdom with us:
“Luck Doesn’t Like a Schmo”
It’s something I’ve never forgotten. In fact, it’s a core element of my philosophy in life.
