Hi everybody. I'm new to this forum and thought I'd take the opportunity to briefly introduce myself. Thank you, @MJ DeMarco, for accepting me. They say that you become like the people you hang around so, hopefully, I'll acquire some of the traits and habits of the successful men and women here. I've read all three of MJ's books, just recently finishing The Great Rat Race Escape . I've been a rat for most of my forty-eight years on this earth. I'm planning to make a transition to scientist while I still can. The books have opened my eyes to the fact that I've been living a SCRIPTED existence, obediently following orders and meeting society's expectations of how I'm supposed to act. I attended what people consider a prestigious college, worked a 9-5 corporate job, and invested in a 401(k) -- often with disastrous results. A change is long-overdue and my only regret is that I wish I had begun this journey sooner.
