Hmmm... This F1 sounds a lot like Steve Carrell’s character’s action figures in “40 Year-Old Billionaire Virgin”. Not even out of the packaging.

Agreed. I also find that my balance between work and home and social relationships enhances the happiness in my life. When something goes really well at work, people around me may care, or get jealous, depending on how secure or successful they are at the time. At home however, or with my brother, or extended family it's always nice to know that I can share with someone disconnected from my occupation and have them genuinely say, "Cool to hear that things are going well for you right now."

Also, I find that, especially after we had kids, my wife and I found a far greater success with leaving work frustrations at work and seeing those frustrations as smaller and more compartmentalized. Heck, I also find that taking a break from obsessing with work allows me to have the perspective that has allowed for me to recognize my greatest solutions to problems I'm facing at work.

Excellent ideas to keep in mind as those of us that deal in cryptocurrencies make decisions in a turbulent market.

I'm imagining a very short story.

Great to hear. It's always about compromise isn't it?

  My father-in-law told my wife and I early on in our marriage "Try for 50-50, but if each of you feels like you're the 60% of a 60-40 compromise,  that's pretty typical, so just let it go."
Wise words that have helped keep the peace.

Very interesting. As a public school teacher, I come across some very fundamentalist people from time to time. This seems to shed some light on what's up with them. These folks are rudderless without their fanatical beliefs.

Yeah. I think I saw something like that. Fortunately for me, the people that guided my value system made sure I knew where that memo came from and it's folly. It's too bad so many folks crank out day after day on the hedonistic treadmill.

The dude has a point. Millennials killing golf? Oh, are they obligated to play golf? They must have missed that message. To think so is ridiculous.

Next, they'll be blamed for killing American football because those greedy millennials don't like to be senile, and/or suicidal, when they possibly reach their fifties. Dammit, they've got to stay productive enough to pay down those unforgivable student loans.
