Are You Feeling Stuck in the Mud of Life?

Are You Feeling Stuck in the Mud of Life?

As it so happens, when you change your Context magically, you are no longer stuck.  You can only achieve so much by DOING things, after all, there are only 24 hours in a day, and most of us need to sleep.

Every good story needs a good guy and a bad guy
