You Have to Be On Your Game at All Times.


My rent paying job at Chamberlain Group, provides me with some positive things.  When troubleshooting, I’m forced to think several moves ahead.  I always have to be on my game, and become angry when I’m not.

My wife has health problems from a tumor in her ear that was dealt with.  It messed with her balance though, she has fallen and broken things and has arthritis and osteoporosis.

When I walk with her, I have to be ready at all times.  No margin for error.

Why am I telling you this?  Don’t have to learn discipline when you are older.  While as a writer, I certainly don’t want to stamp out creativity, the Boy Scouts are right, you always have to be prepared.

You have to be ready to handle the unexpected.  To think moves ahead.  We need to become a more disciplined society and by that I don’t necessarily mean a warrior society.  I mean disciplined, the best entrepreneurial and leadership types singled out, and we keep certain things in mind.

Again, discipline does not have to mean repression.  Just being ready and alert.

 

 

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
