Stopping bye my old Co-op workplace, a young fella came up to me to proclaim, “I am working overtime so I can make the payments on my car so that I can go to work. What about you?”
I chuckled, not saying what I was really thinking … that I was pleased he was working, paying taxes, and contributing to my gov’t pension. I chuckled, yes! Smiled, and said, “I had retired last year.”
Darren has an experiment for us … a test of sorts.
Remember: For those who are prone to motivation by fear … you cannot fight fear with hope … you can only fight fear with FEAR. You must find the greater fear in NOT following your suggestion. To up the fear ante in the alternate choice. To accept a lesser pain than a promise of pleasure. 😉

Good Afternoon World!
Sunny afternoon in Calgary¹ today… as I look forward to learning all I can in the next 4_days about Social Media. I am enrolled in an online course which contains 41 modules … set your own pace. We’ll see… complete one… move on to the next!
My wife is a lot better at keyboard & computer stuff so [Caryl] promises to help organize (adding descriptions and pics) as we prepare to open our virtual garage in our back office. My book reading is coming along well also!
“Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently.”
¹…one of nicest, warmest Winters-on-record!

Yes! Slept in this morning, although I did manage to make breakfast for Caryl before she went to work!
Check email … posted a few things on Facebook, and later, checked on my stocks. I invest online, without a broker. I do so with a fair amount of know-ledge as I subscribe to several money-magazines & online trading publications and services. Nice to see the market move, in the right direction … I’ve done well today!
Off to the dentist now, to get my teeth checked, cleaned, and polished…
…back from the dentist, ouch. Need to brush more frequently and floss better! All is very well. Started preparing supper for when Caryl gets home, then I’ll probably return to my home-office for awhile, back to bed early tonight, as I’ve an early start tomorrow!
