    put together a persona that, by virtue of its contribution to others, gets us into the game and, once we’re on the field, garners enough recognition to secure a position.
    A more interior self-definition is found by some of us -- introverts, I suspect -- outside the game and position. My personal preference is to work toward being a person of peace, not someone in a game seeking position.

    Before I retired, I had to have an outward persona. Frankly, it's good to be rid of it, as it was defined socially and in the workplace. To be who I want to be -- or at least to move in that direction -- is a great relief.

    All the best to you, Robert.
