If the present embodies the past and future,
rational analysis maximizes present accomplishment, and chances of success are better
for those who more accurately prognosticate the farthest into the future,
the who and why to find first is you,
before the when and how to achieve what for the longest time with the least risk.

People are usually more convinced by reasons they discovered themselves
than by those found by others.
If what others think is true may not be what you do,
interpretations should differ.
