Trusted Resources

So maybe its just me but I was thinking about how much time it takes me to pay attention to the Presidential Election news. The more logical solution is to find someone whose opinion I can trust and just ask them who I should vote for. I would have to be careful for sure in choosing my reliable person. In fact I may even have to ask for applications from people just so that I can qualify their personal & family standards before the interview process. When it comes down to it maybe I should hold an election to pick out that right person, once again complicating this entire process. After due consideration I think I'll just ask my wife who to vote for turning what could have been hours and hours of research etc into a three minute question/answer before going to the polls.

Why stop there. If I could get a reliable source that could tell me what movies to watch, what music to buy on Itunes, what funny movies to watch on YouTube, and what restaurant to take Ami to then so much time could be saved. The tediousness of selecting any of the above would only have to be a one time process in choosing a reliable and trustworthy source. So if any of you would like to volunteer your opinions for something that you are passionate about I will consider you to be my go-to person for future decisions. Just let me know in the comments.

Then again maybe its just me.

    You need to read about what Tim Ferris does for this in the four hour week.

    Duh! The trusted resource for all subjects has already been identified (and it’s not the Dali Lama or the Godfather). And, this same source has said, “ask and ye shall receive” which cryptically means that you will receive,not necessarily all the answers, but direction in which to search for them. If you let someone else do your thinking, why bother to vote at all?

    Good Point. I don’t think I’ll vote

    If you meant the part about asking your wife, I would be happy to be your source for all your decisions.
    1. Vote for Hillary and I’ll divorce you.
    2. Download anything from Dashbord and quit listening to the music we did in high school.
    3. I’ve tried to get you to watch Pride and Prejudice and Gone with the Wind but you prefer lame movies like James Bond 1-2398. What? Is he competing with The Land Before Time for the most bad movies.
    4. I’m easy to please. Take me to Ihop and I’ll love you forever!
