Now you're going places...

Many things just happen. Making things happen is another story. The world is bigger than you are and moves very quickly, so creating a more desirable future in it is going to take a bit of planning and lots of energy. First, you will need a goal. What do you want to achieve? Then you will you'll need a strategy (the big picture, broad plans on achieving your goal), tactics (the detailed step by step plans), and adaptability (your plans must be able to mutate to fit changing circumstances at a moments notice, be like a virus). You can use heuristics to help you make decisions. These are little rules of thumb that help you sort through complex information and keep your attention flowing in the right direction. Remember, all of your actions should always serve to close the gap between your present condition and the desired outcome.
Good luck!

Thanks for enlightening me on the Eno lore. I love seeing the image/cover that inspired the landmark album. Gazpachot, you're the man!
