Win Anyway

Posted by heyrandy on October 21, 2009

There is a great deal of uncertainty in the air. It is a form of pollution that is ever present. You cannot change the fact of its presence. You can, however, mitigate its effect. It is easy to say “Nothing can be done.”, but something can be done. It is just a matter of doing it.

What can be done? No list of to do’s will be complete. No collection of tasks can be anything but a start. Here are some that can be started immediately.

Turn off the television, or reduce you time in front of the tube to a few hours a week. This thing is a giant, time-wasting intellectual sludge pit.

Stop, or reduce, video game playing. It is a lot like television.

Get a library card and use it. This is the only way to break free of the government’s near monopoly on your intellectual input. Read some authors that posit a view that you do not like. This will sharpen your mental tools.

Get your news from sources other than the mainstream media. These groups have largely become shills for the government, especially since we how have a new, politically correct president in power.

Lose the weight and get in shape. You may need to be able to do a lot more manual working than you have been used to.

Open a secondary bank account at a bank not connected to the one you now use. With the number of recent bank failures, likely to continue if not increase, it is wise not to put all of your money in just one bank. Yes, there is FDIC coverage, but by the time all the paperwork is done, it could be a long time before you have access to your funds. Meanwhile, the bills keep on coming.

Look back through your life and find all the things that your enemies would use against you. Fix them.

Reconcile with all you have offended and offended you. Forgive them and ask them to forgive you. Move on with your life. Give up the grudge; it is poisoning you.

Get out of debt. Go here for help.

Pay off all old traffic tickets, child support, alimony, taxes, fines, etc. This is a prison sentence waiting to happen. Think of the next job application you fill out: Have you ever been convicted of a felony? Prison aside, you don’t win here.

Improve your manners. The culture is becoming more coarse and vulgar. You will needlessly offend people with bad manners. Good manners, like neatness, only count when you don’t have them. The power elite are impeccably polite, at least in public. Emulate them.

Improve your English. Communications are fundamental to everything. All human contest can be reduced to a battle of and for information.

Stop the whining, self-pity, sour attitude. You don’t like to be around people like this, so why be what you don’t like?

Extend this list.

With list as a start, you can be doing much to prepare yourself for the trouble that lies ahead. If the trouble does not come, you still win.
