“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; genius hits a target no one else can see.”
—Arthur Schopenhauer

“Instead of shooting arrows at someone else’s target, which I’ve never been very good at, I make my own target around wherever my arrow happens to have landed. You shoot your arrow and then you paint your bulls eye around it, and therefore you have hit the target dead centre.”
—Brian Eno

“I had a son, so I said, ‘I’m going to be a father for a while. I’m not going to rush into work. Let the work come find me.” I let the target draw the arrow, the arrows came my way.”
—Matthew McConaughey

For me and anyone else who wants it.

The English Professional Footballers’ Association estimates that 10 to 20 per cent of ex-players go bankrupt. Many more run into big financial problems.

The Financial Times just published an article detailing the financial ruin that many former players face after retirement. Here’s how it typically breaks down: start as the sole breadwinner for a large extended family, add in a number of close associates, mix in expensive tastes, and finally, throw in corrupt financial planners, and you’ve got a dangerous cocktail once the paychecks stop rolling in. If anything, it’s a wonder that the percentage isn’t higher.

While it might be customary to groan about the exorbitant salaries footballers bring in, the reality is that very few have any sort of practical financial sense. Bred from a young age to be athletes, many young footballers live sheltered lives. So when that first large paycheck arrives in their late teens or early twenties, there’s no inclination to set anything aside for later. The PFA rate doesn’t come close to reaching those of American sports, which linger at about 78% of former players for the NFL, and 60% for the NBA, but still underlines the importance of educating young athletes.

As the ancient proverb goes, “mo money, mo problems.” [Posted by Maxi]

I hate guns. If I could snap my finger and get rid of all the guns, I would. I think they’re evil. … People are making money off them, and people are dying. And at some point, when we see what we see, I don’t really care what the other side of the argument is. I don’t care. I just don’t want to see another 3-year-old come in and be shot in the head.
A doctor who treats gunshot victims puts things in perspective. Also see Stephen King on guns. (via explore-blog)

Overturning DOMA is to overturn radicalism not conservatism, and restore the traditional balance between the federal government and the states on civil marriage. The feds have no role in this apart from recognizing whatever a state wants to do. Period. DOMA was a mixture of panic, misinformation, political opportunism … and yet another betrayal of conservatism by the fundamentalist wing of the GOP. Repealing it is the conservative thing to do.
Pointedly eloquent as ever, Andrew Sullivan delivers one of the most intelligent takes on DOMA yet. (via explore-blog)
