If I Knew Then Advice on careers, finance, and life from Harvard Business School's Class of 1963

Andy Petery on Marriage & Family

No one is born a parent. Although our media and bookshops are filled with endless self-help guides and courses, parenting is one of those things in life you must learn by doing. Striving to be a good husband and father have been my greatest challenges. 

I do not regret one bit that we set many “reach goals” for our children — both academically and in sports. In my view, it is necessary to stretch for something that is well beyond your grasp. If you never push yourself to your limits, how do you even know what your limits are? And if you do not force yourself beyond those limits, how do you grow?
