Talk is Cheap But Won’t Make You Freer Tomorrow

The recent election season, and its aftermath left me thinking about speech. It nicely illustrated the old saying that, “talk is cheap.” At the same time, I had some non-political conversations with people that illustrated the same point. These events emphasized over and over how talk is cheap but action is hard. And they showed why most people will never…

Travel Light, Expect Problems

By

By

by Harry Browne Finishing my series on how to get what you want in life inspired me to reread this book. I first read it several years ago and have to confess that I didn’t remember much from it other than discomfort at much of the advice it contained.

Fight For What You Want

By

We’ve been talking about getting what you want in life. Sometimes it goes smoothly. Sometimes it goes more like this,”You ask nicely for it. No luck. You lean into it for a while. But it still looks like you aren’t going to get it.” What’s left? It is time to fight for what you want. Fighting Ain’t What it Used…
