Power, Influence, & The Pursuit of Happiness

If you make it a point to master any one skill, make it idle chit-chat.  It'll do wonders for your social life and  professional aspirations.  I do most of mine where solo idlers congregate. The most successful and content of those I've met shared some things in common. They smile like the sun, don't mind a little dirt, and never let their optimisms fade into the horizon.  They are focused to a fault, on this earth to do what they do, and derive equal joy from work, leisure, and their outcomes.  They acknowledge rules and mores apply to them, but operate under the terms of their own universe.  And whether the world applauds or criticizes, it still looks to them for example.
