I appreciate you sharing the links here. This reminds me of a movie I watched in school. It was the Indians that dipped their heavy mittens into the water to freeze so they would be insulated from the cold and wind. That stuck with me. No idea what the movie was about. Funny what we remember and forget...
pessimist complain about the wind. optimist expect the wind to change. realist adjusts the sails.

I really appreciate your sharing these.
I came across your site a few years ago and couldn't remember what it was or how to find it.
Lots of good stuff there.
Thanks again,

 Very good article,  not deep , everyone should be able to understand it..

 In my experience I have found most overestimate their skills or level of true skills...  I say you have to own the skills and have preached that for a very long time..

 What one man thinks is prudent another will say you are crazy.. Taking the measure of yourself,  you have to be  honest with yourself otherwise it can kill you.. Do I really own those skills under many different kinds of conditions.. can I make it work.

 Mors always imparts good knowledge and not only appies to his AO but can be transferred to other areas with modifications..

 Well  done article..
