Some people will tell you how much they believe in you
Some will profess they share your vision
But only a few will actually show their support with action
So what does this teach us, what are the lessons?
Never count on even those that you trust
Alas, everyone has different goals and priorities
And thus, you’ll walk different paths
Don’t expect much, only from self
Because you can always back it up
With relentless effort
Since you’re the one who really wants it that much
Stay focused, stay sharp!
Stay ready, pack a punch!
To be as good a value investor as David Tepper
However, living in a doggy-dog era
He stood a better chance being a trapper
At least on paper
He thought – why not just trade it all in
Nationality, identity, family, society
And like Tom Bayer the financier
Move to some island that’s not a dependency of a major foreign power
And there settle in
Start building and free dealing
But then he started considering
On the other side, is the grass even green?
Is it not easier just acquiescing and complying?
Is freedom even attainable in a society based ecosystem?
Is true freedom not the death of all dependency?
Meaning the idea could be nothing more than just a fancy
And humanity inherently has a need for belonging
there appears to be a correlation between growth and an increased responsibility load
and managing both is an expansionist’s service oath
also, decisive action and accountability when at fault one cannot afford to compromise on
because doing what others won’t typically makes you captain of the boat
but know that your character shall be tested and if not totally committed to the cause, you’ll come up short
The last few years have been a wild ride. Laying down foundations, building, growing. Conquests and triumphs and a fair amount of challenges and tragedies. All part of the journey.
Through it all, I never stopped writing. Was simply working on other forms. Slightly different to the material you typically find on this blog.
If interested in that other side, you’re welcome to check out the work.

That’s what I’m pursuing
Ownership of my time and control over the options
As far as how I choose to live out my dreams
So I’ll trade my time for bitcoin
Not cloths strips or aggry beads
Or anything based on an ersatz gold monetary standard
That’d only make me a slave to the system
Give me honest money
Not currencies backed only by armies
Digits on screens serving the purpose of counterfeit bills
Forget days off
If you want to get on and stay on
Because there’s a price to pay
For every bit you earn and coin you own
So only take time out
To sharpen your arsenal
And know there’s nothing comfortable
About journeying to the top
For those who do the most
Understand the cost…
And that time is the only loss
That affects earning potential
