Change of message time.
Whatever I'm doing right now isn't working. This Zen-Buddhist-Philosopher poker player thing I got going on now is nice, but it's just talk. And talk is cheap. I have goals to achieve. Places I want to be. I have to get busy. I gotta get volume, gotta get motivation to get volume. I have to strike a primal urge.
There's nothing healthy about this need to become the best. And there's nothing inherently good or bad about wanting to be the best. It's just drive. It gives one energy. It can be fear; it can be lust; it can be greed. Whatever gives me drive I'll use. I'm not here to become an educated derelict. I can worry about what people think of me when I'm dead.
The plan (Andrew Carnegie Dictum):
1. To spend the first third of one's life getting all the education one can.
2. To spend the next third making all the money one can.
3. To spend the last third giving it all away for worthwhile causes.
