One For The Colonel

“In five years, you will be the same exact person you are today, except for the people you meet and the books you read.” ~ Og Mandino

Poor Khadafy - he never made it past Colonel. In 2011 he faced a difficult situation. The nation he commanded for years was turning its back on him, much the same way a husband or wife might turn his or her back on the other spouse. Suddenly the boat of life is treading rocky waters. The thrill is gone. So is the fun. Anything could happen.

What do you do and who do you blame when things go awry? My suggestion, as tough as it may be to swallow, is to simply move on. Some things just cannot be repaired, nomatter how much you pray or cry or wish. Walk quickly, and don't look back just yet - you can look back a year from now - probably without regret.

To his credit, the Colonel tackled life as an OPTIMIST! According to a study by the Mayo Clinic, people who see life from a more negative, pessimistic viewpoint, do not live as long as their more optimistic counterparts. That includes "dictators."

If you could re-set your lifetrack, what would you do? Read "The Power of Positive Thinking?" Watch "The Secret" video?

One way to introduce some changes that may re-set your life compass is to adjust your daily routine schedule. To download a blank Habitual Activity Chart, please Click Here.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
