Although the first wheel is considered to be one of the most important inventions of mankind, no credit was given to the inventor. No monument, no day to remember, nothing. Why?
Because it was worthless. Nobody could use it for anything until the second wheel was invented. Only then the biggest technical problem to construct a working bicycle could be solved and that was the very beginning of mobility. Think of it.
Praise the second wheel when riding your bike in the upcoming season.

The previous quote of "Napoleon Hill's thought of the day" reminded me how I switched to Linux after a few failed attempts some 15+ years ago.

I said to myself, "No matter what software tries to pull me back to that bad OS, surely there will be something to achieve the same or better results with Linux. I will find and use that alternative. I have wasted too many lifetime hours, now I take over control."

So I did and it worked. I can confirm it's the most effective way to flip the switch.

When you have the potential for success within you, adversity and temporary defeat only help you prepare to reach great heights of success. Without adversity, you would never develop the qualities of reliability, loyalty, humility, and perseverance that are essential to enduring success. Many have escaped the jaws of defeat and achieved great victories because they would not allow themselves to fail. When escape routes are closed, you will surprisingly quick find the path to success.

Life is like riding a bicycle.
Either you keep moving, or you fall down.

Yesterday I went to the bank, wearing a FFP2 mask and a hood.
I was asked for an ID document and handed over my passport.
It was copied for identification and authorization on behalf of another bank.
I wonder if the procedure would have been still valid if I also had big dark sunglasses on.
