"Doubt your doubts and radiate optimism."

 "I shall pass through this world but once; any good things, therefore, that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being, or dumb animal, let me do it now.  Let me not deter it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."  --John Galsworthy

 From a review of In Pursuit of Happiness: "the invisible foot," says Milton Friedman.  That's the law of unintended consequences.  * * * Life is about happiness -- which people (when pressed) generally concur isn't a new BMW or an orgasm, but rather lasting and justified satisfaction with one's life as a whole.  Happiness includes the self-respect that comes from accepting responsibility for one's life and earning one's way in the world.  It flows from realizing your innate capacities by doing productive work and overcoming ever more challenging obstacles, impelled more by your own inner imperatives than by the mere need to make a living.

I should be telecommuting from Tahiti. Dawn on a beach of pure white sand and green sparkling seas....I catch the few fish I need for my daily fare and then walk naked down the beach to my grass hut with massive metal Linking up with the satellite, I quickly type in enough code to make my daily expenses. Length of my workday? Three minutes and thirty-seven seconds. I yawn as I turn off my battery-powered laptop and head for my hammock and a cool glass of fermented coconut milk.
