    Default Places you don't go or things you don't do because they are beyond your ability?

    For me some are:
    Funerals
    Bars (good thing I don't drink)
    Managing other people
    Interact with anglo women
    Places where people are talking from different directions
    Multi-tasking
    Live meetings: I generally attend remotely from my desk

    I often am asked "Is anything wrong? at buffets and cafeterias. Try getting lunch when the noise and movement around you make you dizzy. It can be done, but apparently it makes people around you uncomfortable (that's THEIR problem).


    My manager told me not to give up on managing people. He thinks one day, I can manage an offshore team. What are some things you won't even attempt, because they are 100% beyond your ability?

    Battlefield.
    Aiming at human beings.
    Indifferent alike to praise or blame
    Give heed, O Muse, but to the voice Divine
    Fearing not injury, nor seeking fame,
    Nor casting pearls to swine.
    (A.Pushkin)

    Depends on what you're defending. Defending unappreciative sheep seems to be a mindset.

    I don't go to work and can't shop with women.

    1) Don't like to fly. I figure that God put my nose at the height it is for a reason
    2) Don't ski or run, knees are shot
    3) Hate roller coasters
    4) LOVED taking a 44 foot MLB into the surf
    A man reaches a certain age where he doesn't want any drama.
    He doesn't want to fight with anyone, but if he's forced to he will NOT fight fair, he will NOT quit and there are NO weapons he will not use

    Best to leave him alone with his coffee, bourbon and cigars. Don't poke the old men, they WILL hurt you.

    Communicating with other people who are willing to admit....They don't know, what they don't know, they don't know. And not trying to always pretend...they somehow, DO?

    Credibility in question here. I don't care.
