Learn to accept
If you miss the target,
it’s not the wind’s fault
or the target’s fault;
be the one who
accepts responsibility.

Don't leave your attitude to
chance; put it to choice.


Choices determine where
we go, what we get and
who we become.

You are who you are, are
where you are and have
what you have because you
have chosen those things.

We are the sum total
of our choices.

Empowered choices create
an empowered life.

A meaningful life starts
with meaningful choices.

I Asked for Strength

I asked God for strength that I might achieve.
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy.
I was given poverty that I might be wise.

I asked for power that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.

I am, among all men, most richly blessed.

This poem was found on the
body of an unknown soldier of the Confederate Army,
Killed at the battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War.

Life may not be the
party we hoped for, but
while we are here we
might as well dance.

"Life is 10% what
happens to me and 90%
how I react to it."

Optimize Later

I find myself constantly expending decision-making energy on tasks as trivial as making an extra trip down into the basement. If I’m going to go to the basement, I rationalize, I need to have something to bring down AND to bring back up. Maybe my real calling in life is to be a shipping dispatcher, but since I’m not in that business it’s actually a problem because it’s often faster to make multiple trips. Failure to do so leads to distraction and unnecessary delay.

Nothing of me is original.
I am the combined effort

Making big decisions about money

We're bad at it. And marketers know this.

Consider: you're buying a $30,000 car and you have the option of upgrading the stereo to the 18 speaker, 100 watt version for just $500 more. Should you?

Or perhaps you're considering two jobs, one that you love and one that pays $2,000 more. Which to choose?


You are lucky enough to be able to choose between two colleges. One, the one with the nice campus and slightly more famous name, will cost your parents (and your long-term debt) about $200,000 for four years, and the other ("lesser" school) has offered you a full scholarship.

Which should you take?
