Just in Case you Stay Alive

I am always impressed by evil masterminds who want to take over the world in books and movies when they plot and plant and wait and develop and in 40 years have created the machine and evil manpower to (they hope) make their plan work.

The patience, the foresight, the design, the recruitment, all of it seems to be impossibly out of reach in reality, but people really do make it work. The slow changes made by evil influences on the culture of the United States have been almost unnoticeable as they have advanced. When you look back 30 years, it is astonishing to see what depth and distance has been gained against the Kingdom by patient ungodly forces.

Put the dynamic to work in your life. Do you want to be able to play piano, or speak Arabic, or cook better than Wolfgang Puck? Imagine that you really are going to live a long time. Add up 10 minutes a day for 10 years. You don’t have to be able to devote 10 hours a day to a project of improving your skills in order to actually improve your skills.

Decide to gain some skill that you wish you had already gained. DECIDE.

Then, find a course that you really can take at your own pace. Make that pace be 10 minutes a day. Do not quit. 10 minutes a day for 10 years and you should be able to design rockets! In 5 years, you should be able to play guitar, or paint what you imagine, or build websites, or bake crème brûlée that makes people cry.

Decide today. In 5 years, show me what you can do!

Be awesome.
