Do you try to improve your station in life? And if yes, how?

I am always trying to improve myself and have a huge list so it's tough work.

You would think I'm sorta close to perfect by now but that doesn't seem to quite be the case.

Maybe if I procrastinated less that would be a big help.

What's your secret? Got any tips? Help us all.

It's like driving an old Land Rover with a testy clutch up a very muddy hill. You're making slow progress, but keep slipping back. And there's a lot of noise. And the guy on the mule is laughing at you.

Hey, *I* think you're perfect. But then, I have a soft spot for you Otter dudes.

Read Larry Winget. He's growly, but he makes sense.

You should probably post the list so we can <strike> tease you mercilessly </strike> help out better and give you tips.

One thing that has really helped me out though is not to dwell on things that frustrate me and I can't change. There has been several in the last year with a boyfriend of one of my daughters that I have just had to make peace with myself over and now I don't worry about it all the time. I have given her my thoughts and that is all I can really do.

I am currently robbing banks to finance the construction of a sound-proof room where I will keep an army of child slave labor. I will feed them gluten-free products to keep them healthy and happy. Then I will force them to make all the quality products I need in my daily life. No more buying expensive gas cans at stores like a schmuck.

I document the rate at which bread shrinks in the freezer.

You don't procrastinate when you really want to do something, know why you're doing it, and know you're gonna have a real reward for it (eventually, or right now, is irrelevant).
