You can derive powerful motivation from negative things if you chose the
positive path.
When you see someone frustrated, help. You will both feel better. A pretty
simple psychological test. Repeat it and see. It does work and is a
worthwhile investment.
As did I compared to those before me...........the way you pay back those
folks is by helping others in this hobby or whatever it is that you do in
life. Help the poor newbie, help the sick planted tanks, fight for plant
justice and the planted tanks shall inherit the earth.


And you're right about the payback technique - spread it around.

Still, I'd always been told we were nothing but a life support system for our mitochondria. It's nice to know that we're also part of the life support system for our tanks too, ensuring that they're there to take over after the cataclysm :-)

Thanks for that one, Tom.
