Episode #39 of Strained Brains is UP!

ArTharglePargle McGooberBits!  Episode #39 of Strained Brains Podcast is UP!  This is part 1 of 3 where me and Burt Murdock—an “elite” military guy, and the fellow who introduced me to psychedelics (fictionally, of course)—run our ignorant suck-holes about people we hate!  Give it a listen by following the links on this page:  Strained Brains Podcast.



One of the best ways to bring people together (and inoculate them against pain and discomfort) is to imbue their minds with a sense of meaning.

You don’t need a lot of resources to pull this off; you can simply do the best you can with what you have.  By consistently striving to do the best you can with what you have (which includes examining mistakes and adjusting accordingly), you will—by default—demonstrate discipline, strategy, and the perennial qualities endorsed by societal luminaries.  Over the course of time, you will maximize your chances of success, and subsequently, maximize the odds you will inspire someone else.  You’ll be able to build off smaller successes, and springboard onto large ones.

It all starts with doing the best you can with what you have, regardless of who takes notice.  Life is already hard, so why—over the long-term—make it any harder than it has to be?  Do the best you can with what you have.

News:  I’m still grinding along on all fronts, only a helluva lot slower.  Why?  The JOB SEARCH!  The job search has begun in earnest, and holy crap, is it complicated.  Basically, you gotta tailor a resume to get past the robots who scan it, then have it interesting enough for people to glance at it and grant you an interview, then do well at the interview.  But hey, that’s how things work, so if I want to work, then I gotta figure out how things work so I can get back to work.

That’s it for now!  If you’re a writer, I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!!!  🙂 🙂 😀

Humans have evolved to indulge in immediate gratification and it makes perfect sense; those base instincts once encouraged our survival.  They have driven our evolution.

But in order to keep evolving, in order to keep surviving, it is essential to reign in our desire for immediate gratification.  It is essential to play the long game.

As always, discipline and strategy are of the utmost importance.

When pursuing your dreams, do what you can as often as possible, or your options will be taken away one by one, and you will be increasingly forced into doing what is necessary.  As time goes on, “doing what is necessary” will serve your dreams less and less.

I think it’s better to do what you can, while you can still do it.
