Design a Life: The Science and The Art

I have often marveled at the science of plotting the graph for a successful life. People like Mozart, Tiger Woods, The Williams Sisters and Michael Jackson were child prodigies whose parents successfully designed their lives to ensure that they became outstanding in their fields. I contrast that to stories of people like Steve Jobs, whose lives are designed inadvertently yet successfully by a passion for what they love to do. Steve Jobs’ biological mother went to great lengths to ensure that her son went to college. And he did, for one semester, after which he dropped out. However Jobs dropped in on some calligraphy classes which helped him to develop multiple typefaces for the Mac computer used the world over today. My mother’s refrain regarding any project has always been “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. I have been haunted by that maxim all my life because I am far too spontaneous to plot a scientific graph, at least not for life, but am more inclined towards the art of living every day fervently. I was comforted and inspired by Steve Jobs commencement address to the graduating students from Stanford University in 2005. Follow your heart and the dots will connect looking backwards.

These kinds of seats might be mounted or could quite possibly
be mounted to produce the boat. Proform seats are faultless seats for limited boats.

We can point out that it isn't a shoe everything is GUCCI. So, undoubtedly its Louis Vuitton purses and handbags aren't any exceptions.

Their step by step guide was something that could definitely
be implemented, BUT, some of their methods are not for the faint hearted.

Remember folks, the biggest obstacle you'll face when you're trying
to find a perfect work at home opportunity, is yourself.
This is where you look at what you want in a company, tune it
down, and find the offer that makes sense to you.
