I thought I’d share my list of observations with you all.  I hope you find this useful.

Don't Ask How to Succeed

Pay no attention to the number of returns (61.4 million). Consider, instead, that there are thousands of people who believe they have the recipe for “you” to succeed. Digest a few of their words. You quickly find them based on rational thinking, logical steps, work, and - mostly - luck.

Exposure Is Mostly BS...Mostly

Exposure is mostly BS…mostly
