Cool. Apparently, they played a little game like 'Sims' but they took all the last names in the country and randomly assigned them first names. Well, this is cool to me since there are only about a dozen people (or less) who have my last name. This means I had a good chance of landing a leading role. So, there I was Thrynn Crazylastname standing in line waiting to board a plane. Not quite sure where I was headed, but it didn't matter. Desitiny had other plans. I wonder if my character lives or dies in their scenario. I bet I live, but I'm probably took serious battle damage. I feel like I should be paid for my role in the game.

"Through the years, I have greatly feared and sought to keep at bay the four beasts that inevitably devour their keeper -- Ego, Envy, Avarice, and Ambition."
And therin lies the problem. People who start and/or run businesses end up getting consumed by ambition and ego. Their businesses end up failing, or failing to meet the full potential becuase that person refuses to make an organization that can function without him or her. This seems unnatural since many people feel they *are* their work and if their work doesn't rely on them they feel they are wandering without purpose.
UPDATE: Whoops. That should be "People who start and/or run businesses *usually* end up.." I should proofread my posts better.
Wow. Did they write this for me? I have been struggling with this for quite some time. Besides asking "THE" question I have also asked, "Why do most people get up early, go to work, stay all day, go home, and do it all over again everyday?". This seems like an unnatural, engraved thought process forced upon humans. It could be I just haven't answered "THE" question, and therefore won't be able to answer question number two until I do. Thanks for the link.
