    Change can be a good thing. At least sometimes.

    Meanwhile, let me tell you about Phil Munsey, a guy I heard on the radio the other day. He wrote a book last year called "Legacy Now: Why Everything About You Matters."

    The point of his book is that big or small, everything in our lives matters and everything we do has eternal consequences.
