Cultivating Mars

                Here's an idea, there is all this activity to investigate mars looking for life on the planet. Why don't we take life to mars? We could make progress in establishing a habit by bringing seeds of plants that are very hardy here on earth. My idea would be to bring the seeds of the hardy mesquite bush to the red planet. We have all this technology to genetically engineer things, why couldn't we engineer mesquite bush seeds to grow on mars. There thousands of plants here on earth that grow wild without any help from humans. I know this may be a long shot, but after watching some shows on YouTube about finding life on mars I got to thinking why can't we just take life to mars and let it grow and take over on its own and the plants would create an atmosphere that would allow eventual human habitation on mars. All the people out there that believe in evolution should also believe that life here on earth can grow and evolve to survive on the surface of mars. It only makes since then you would have an opportunity to prove that life does evolve no matter what kind of conditions. Really I thought this was such a good idea I had to blog about it. Just think a bunch of plants that we call weeds being genetically altered to grow on the conditions of mars then they grow "like weeds" which is what they are and they cultivate the planet for us. We don't even need to send in humans to do the gardening because the plants will grow on their own and all we have to do is wait for it to take over the planet, establish and atmosphere and when it is done then we send in humans to inhabit the land. I know this might be nothing more than science fiction but I still thought it was an idea that I must share. Knowing that I will never get in contact with scientists from NASA or anything I can still blog my ideas after all this is my blog so I can post anything I want to. Just think of the possibilities!

New Experiences

          Everything we do in life has rewards and set backs. Just because you think you should go in one direction, but then the project or goal you had in mind takes a different path doesn't mean you actually lost out. No in fact, it is actually a learning experience that you will be able to use later on in life or in fact, allow you to see things in a better light and keep things in perspective. So do not be worried if the thing you tried to do seemed to be up your alley but you later find out that it wasn't really right for you. Just chalk it up as a learning experience and keep your head held high and know that you can accomplish anything that you set your mind too. It is just not always the thing that is actually any good for you. Either at this moment or even ever. Life has a way of working itself out. You don't necessarily need to get upset about it just know that you did your best despite all odds, you took a chance,put yourself out there and learned a little something about something and you are better for having at least attempted something than not have done anything at all and left your dreams and ambitions lying on the floor never to be used or thought of ever again.

TIME Explains: The Battle for the Penny

Here is an excellent example of strategy in action. Do we keep making and using the penny even though it makes no economical sense or do we as a nation decide to stop production on the penny and transfer over to an economic system that is based on a factor of 5 cents rather than 1 cent.

Hello again everybody!
                   I just want to thank everyone that visits my blog. I know this is time spent that you could be using to do other things, which is why I try to keep posting interesting topics. As well as going to college full-time I try to write about topics about strategy. I believe this is an area in which can benefit people from all walks of life. Strategy doesn't necessarily have to be about war time strategies like I believe most people to think of when they hear the term strategy. It can range from anywhere to clipping coupons to save money or how you are going to approach the way you will design and build your house, not only how it will look but how long you want it to take and also how you will pay for it. What I am saying is that I think if we each take some joy in the daily decisions that we make then it can enrich our lives for the better. If anyone has some ideas on what kind of topic you would like to see discussed. Then by all means feel free to leave a comment and I will try my best to write about it. I am not a professional writer by all means but everyone has to start somewhere, so again by all means please leave some feedback.
                                  Your friend,
                                                      The Strategist
