I'm excited to have found and checked out this book from a local library yesterday. It's a book I've been wanting to read for a while. In many ways our brains are like computers. It's called "Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions".

"You don't know you have freedom until you lose it." I've been thinking about this a lot recently. While you could interpret that as having freedom, and then losing your freedom by going to prison, I've been thinking about it in terms of living in a country with freedom, and then moving to a country with much less . I lived in a country with very limited freedom for about 3 years, and had taken my freedom for granted beforehand. The moral of this is to never take your freedom for granted

for today from
Lose this day loitering—'twill be the same story
To-morrow—and the next day dilatory;
Each indecision brings its own delays,
And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days.
Are you in earnest? seize this very minute—
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Only engage, and then the mind grows heated—
Begin it, and then the work will be completed!

2021 can be a better year for every one of us. Are you going to be reactive and let outside forces determine what you will do, or be and determine your own destiny? Habit 1 from the book is "be proactive". Being proactive will pay off.

We all have 24 hours / day, 168 hours / week, 720 hours / month (assuming 30 days / month), and roughly 8760 hours / year to do with as we please. Time is precious; use it wisely. Try to make 2021 your best year yet.
