Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Monday, 2018.12.10
Every day passes whether you participate or not. If you are not careful, years
will go by and you will only have regrets. If you cannot solve a problem all at
once, at least make a stab at it. Reduce your problems into smaller, more
manageable packages, and you can make measurable progress toward achievement. If
you wait for everything to be perfect according to your preconceived plans, then
you may well wait forever. If you go out and work with the current of life, you
may find that success comes from building upon small things.

Voice In The Sand

Michael Yon emails he is headed back to Iraq for another year. His independent reporting on the war and the American efforts in that region is truly exceptional. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, start here: Little Girl / Strength and Compassion and The Hands of God.

Mr. Yon’s work is entirely reader funded – no legacy media meddling – so if you appreciate his work, you can go here and learn how to support his effort.

I sent along another $100 this morning.
