Thanks for pausing to start this thread... good stuff to consider, as we rush around.

If I can add another thought: 20 yrs back, I did a drastic mid-life career change, and found out my self-worth was based far too much on how slick a job I did..... found out by suddenly being a new guy at the bottom, who didn't have a feel for how things work in the new field.
Took a nose-dive into depression, but found some help in the book "Learned Optimism", and the author's talk on "explanatory styles". I'd adopted a negative style--when I stumbled, I thought it was Personal [It's all my fault.], Pervasive [Everything's going wrong.], and Permanent [It's always going to be like this.]

Seeing my negative, default point of view for what it was started the turn-around. [A strong wife and a good doctor helped, too.] We CAN learn to make better choices, in what we do and how we think.

'End of sermonette...... Merry Christmas!.......... Gary
