That is where you Fabians have it completely wrong. Everything ****ed up that ever happened to me in my life is completely attributable to me directly. If something bad happened to me.... it was on me. I mean unless some shmuck runs a red light and t-bones me.
On the other hand, I have found when I put forth less than a top effort, I generally got less than top results and when I worked my ass off, I generally got results.
And since I haven't had a "boss" since 1976.... I really couldn't blame him, now, could I?
