We’re driven to appear employable. We seek out BAs, internships, MBAs and JDs. Some of us, however, don’t want to work for anyone else; we’d rather set our own hours, own a business, and drive the vision of our workdays. So our ostensible options are working for others or working for ourselves. Our option is not ever to not work; we will work. The question is for whom.Read More

The deathbed turns a person’s thoughts to something higher. The old ways of the self fall to the side as eyes start searching for meaning, identity and purpose.
You can’t make yourself grow. You cannot tell muscle, sinew and bone to expand. This power does not belong to you.
You can, however, make for an environment that fosters growth. You can put the right things into your body. You can exert yourself in such a way that the body responds with growth. You can rest so that the body has time to recover. You can supplement a healthy diet with creatine, protein powders and a dash of HGH. You can even enlist Balco to help you. All of these together create an environment for growth.Read More
