"I agree with Dallas.  You don't need long term goals ... you need short-term goals.  You need something to work toward daily, not annually, or in a half-decade. You need a bucket list -- things you want to see, or learn, or…"

Steve Dallas replied to James Head's discussion Just kinda lost...
"My thought would be to can the 5 year goal. Set 1 year goals. Set something realistic, and get it. You've done a lot already, instead of planning ahead so much, work at just living. Clear the bucket list. Instead of saying I want to be here in…"

"You need to find another direction or life-goal.  Death is the end, and it's a drag but you've got a lot of life to live between now and that final day.  As for rocking the world and out-doing the competition; why can't you…"

Hey all, I'm a 53 year old divorcee with 2 grown successful daughters. My kids are my motivation, but they have their lives to lead and new relationships to develop. I'm not the all knowing central figure in their lives that I once was.I don't see a clear path anymore. Sure, I have a few ideas of where I need to be in a 5 years or so but the end view is always the same: planning for my burial in a veteran cemetery,. ( what a drag ).I miss the days of my youth when I could rock the world and…See More

Sir replied to James Head's discussion Manliness. Doe's it matter?
"On the plus side, we now have leisure to think about personal satisfaction, as opposed to merely getting by.  (Of course, third-worlders also focus on something beyond merely getting by, sometimes.  They do have holidays, after all,…"

John Muir replied to James Head's discussion Manliness. Doe's it matter?
"I disagree, sir.  Rites of manhood are to be found in most tribal cultures - to include Judaism. Therefore I've found that tribal cultures are staged against a definition of manliness - usually a clearly defined one often discussed and…"

"We were like that not too long ago, we were mostly an agrarian nation, with the cities populated by throngs of immigrant factory workers. The middle class was tiny. Most were preoccupied with survival; there was no time for positing or role…"
