"Teaser chapters of Captain LaFoote leave me wanting more!"
If the boss' desk is clean, it's a good bet the assistant is doing his/her job.
Do not say to your neighbor, Go, and come back, And tomorrow I will give it, When you have it with you. - Proverbs 3:28
Usually a person with short views does not get along with a person who takes the long view. One will be optimistic, the other pessimistic. (One's present circumstances can sour your view of tomorrow.) A person peering into the future should prepare for both good and bad, but expect the best. This is the hope of mankind. The person who lives in the present enjoys life more, but may drift into difficulties. Living in the past is best left to historians. Take the long view. It is difficult but important.
