Opportunity To Get It Right From Federal Prison

I have often wondered why I chose to make the poor decisions I made on various days over the past several years. Those poor decision days were sandwiched between numerous other days where I had no problem making good decisions. What was different on the days I chose to make bad decisions? Was I simply teetering on a moral fence, where I would occasionally fall on the wrong side? Did I lack the moral and ethical backbone to consistently do the right thing every single day?

Poor decisions lead to bad outcomes. The fact that I am drafting this blog from my Prison bunk suggests a bad outcome.

As I look to the future, I want to focus on fortifying my character to insure that I make good decisions on a consistent basis regardless of the circumstances or the consequences. Good decisions produce good outcomes!

To accomplish my goal, I plan to devote an inordinate amount of my time in prison to the study of morals and ethics.

Each morning, When I wake up, I am going to utter to myself some very simple words; “Thanks for giving me another opportunity to get it right!” If I had followed this practice over the past several years, I would not be writing to you from prison. My goal is to build my own ” ____days without a significant bad decision board” whose number will slowly build to an incredibly high figure.

I am assuming that it will be easier to make “good decisions ” in confinement, away from the pressures of the real world. However, I expect my practice of making ” good decisions ” in prison will establish an entrenched habit of making “Good Decisions ” after prison.

I will keep you posted on my progress.
