"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…"

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,.

"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,…"

"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…"

"I find that the people who speak the most about the virtues of manliness are the ones who feel that manliness is threatened. The same people often feel that what threatens manliness and men is women and their successes. My opinion is that we must…"
