It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.August 5, 2009 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #1084682

I’m trying to stay away from the CR for the next few weeks, but I saw this inspiring quote today from John Lee, a financial blogger who gives away most of his analysis and trades for free on the Internet, and who’s up over 300% for the year.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
Most people never feel secure because they are always worried that they will lose their job, lose the money they already have, lose their spouse, lose their health, and so on. The only true security in life comes from knowing that every single day you are improving yourself in some way, that you are increasing the caliber of who you are and that you are valuable to your company, your friends, and your family.
— Anthony Robbins
Most people struggle with life balance simply because they haven’t paid the price to decide what is really important to them.
