    Without meaning to be rude, I find it difficult to believe an 18 year old could add much value to personal development. You’re no doubt very bright and have all the right words, but you could not have the abundance of life experiences to bring those words to life.

    I wish you luck and much time to truly find the meaning of all those things you write of. It will be interesting to see where you’re at in 20 years.

    I simply believe you are wrong. Although it may seem hard to see how someone who is 18 could have had “life experiences” everything I write on this website is the result of them. These aren’t just values and ideas I’ve read in a book and then written down, they are values I live. Where I don’t have experience I don’t write, surprisingly there is plenty life experience in 18 years to write about. I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see what will come of another twenty.

    But you are entitled to your opinion and I’m not in the business of pleasing everyone and I wish you the best of luck.

    Perhaps not only does he practice speed reading, but also speed living ? ;-)

    I guess not subvocalizing for speed living would translate into not thinking?

Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
