# 21 A rut is a rut is a rut is a rut
Ruts come into all of our lives. One reason that they infect us all

# 22. Who isn’t afraid of the dark sometimes?
Define dark, President Clinton might say. I say it’s what you don’t
know. Whatever your “dark” is, that can be frightening. If you’re
preparing for an event and are worried about its outcome, there is
not much you can do except YOUR JOB, whatever that may be. You
over-prepare and over-prepare, then sit back and watch things
happen. Somehow, the Boogie Man usually stays away.
