Although Plantings Past May Have Fallen Below The 50-percent Expectation

The 50-Percent Theory of Life,I believe in the 50-percent theory. Half the time things are better than normal; the other half, they are worse. I believe life is a pendulum swing. It takes time and experience to understand what normal is, and that gives me the perspective to deal with the surprises of the future.
Let's benchmark the parameters yes, I will die. I've dealt with the deaths of both parents, a best friend, a beloved boss and cherished pets. Some of these deaths have been violent, before my eyes, or slow and agonizing. Bad stuff and it belongs at the bottom of the scale.
Then there are those high points: romance and marriage to the right person; having a child and doing those Dad things like coaching my son's baseball team, paddling around the creek in the boat while he's swimming with the dogs, discovering his compassion so deep it manifests even in his kindness to snails, his imagination so vivid he builds a spaceship from a scattered pile of Lagos.
But there is a vast meadow of life in the middle, where the bad and the good flip-flop acrobatically. This is what convinces me to believe in the 50-per-cent theory.
One spring I planted corn too early in a bottom-land so flood-prone that neighbor laughed. I felt chagrined at the wasted effort. Summer turned brutalâ€” the worst heat wave and drought in my lifetime. The air-conditioner died; the well went dry; the marriage ended; the job lost; the money gone. I was living lyrics from a country tune â€” music I loathed. Only a surging Kansas City Royals team buoyed'8) my spirits.
For that one blistering summer, the ground moisture was just right, planting early allow pollution before heat withered the tops, and the lack of rain spared the standing corn from floods. That winter my crib overflowed with cornâ€”fat, healthy three-to-a-stalk ears filled with kernels from heel to tipâ€”while my neighbors' fields yielded only brown, empty husks.
Although plantings past may have fallen below the 50-percent expectation, and they probably will again in the future, I am still sustained by the crop that flourishes during the drought.
What is Your Recovery Rate? How long does it take you to recover from actions and behaviors that upset you? Minutes? Hour? Day? Weeks? The longer it takes you to recover, the more influence that incident has on your actions, and the less able you are to perform to your personal best. In a nutshell, the longer it takes you to recover, the weaker you are and the poorer your performance.
You are well aware that you need to exercise to keep the body fit and, no doubt, accept that a reasonable measure of health is the speed in which your heart and respiratory system recovers after exercise. Like-wise the faster you let go of an issue that upsets you, the faster you return to an equilibrium, the healthier you will be. The best example of this behavior is found with professional sportspeople. They know that the faster they can forget an incident or missed opportunity and get on with the game, the better their performance. In fact, most measure the time it takes them to overcome
