I have been reviewing mu own individual development plan………..incorporating a good deal from Garry Kasparov’s’ book [ referenced below]. Many lessons . Am reading it for the third time… more slowly….meditatively……..Very useful…. [ for years I assumed my speed allowed me to skim/summarize simultaneously…… of course now in hindsight,,,, missing a lot!……….it turns out.

I need, first to develop a great deal more patience and humility…even first. What Garry must have used, to get to be world chess champ @ 22! Normal business requires both now , i believe, not just chess. Though that’s a start!! My creeping progress on this quest is reflected in the “Blogs” recorded below, independently over the last 1/2year. With more to come………here….throughout the 7th phase of my Life!

Expressed in numbers = 15%, 35%, 25%, 25%. Age has it’s own pace….useless to try to change it…………. simply be aware, Especially of others’ feelings, i.e. empathy. Garry’s recent book “Deep Thinking” leads into spirituality. Both, I believe, are more important than I ever practiced or was aware of, in my younger days. However I’m happy to have focused via these ratios now!!

In forethinking my next birthday, 5/7/2022, [my 88th], I am clear that I’ve aged a bit physically this last year or so……… Perhaps some mentally…..just not openly aware of it……….. Surely seems quite good…feels like I have more wisdom, and experience to call upon. Which is fulfilling. Perhaps more than ever before! Will it morph on to Spiritual? And Social? , I’ve decided to work on maintaining all four……..for sure capitalizing on my current mental, and possible Spiritual growth, the last of which has been somewhat passed over in importance. Am re-reading Garry Kasparov’s book,[paperback ISBN 978-1-473-65351-1] more carefully, to facilitate this goal .And expect to blog more about that, here, as part of my website.

As you likely know, Garry Kasparov was the World Champion Chess Player, @ age 22. and accepted a challenge match from a design team @ IBM. He won decisively and of course was challenged again, with a suitable pause for press coverage and design refocus. Gary’s book published in 2017,gives a fascinating review of the two matches, He lost the second, which turned to be all that many people remembered ?!?!!!! …… and he makes the forever point that the game isn’t “Man Versus Machine” but will be, always was, “Man With Machine”………!!! That’s a part of all our futures!!!

In a blog, on 9/20/2019 entitled “Time [ or more explicitly “Its use”]”,I wrote some thoughts on this perspective….believing that the two are always linked…sometimes for some of us……..A LOT!! It’s worth the time/energy to review that. AND to bring into close integration with each other, many of the recent blogs, below…..Garry Kasparov’s book “Deep Thinking”……… the fundamentals of “Chess”………my own personal development plan…. I’ll briefly cover each to help cement in place, that base……..as the main focus of much of my comments…………

I’m paying attention more recently, to reviewing my entire website.

So it reflects my latest perspectives, @ this stage of my life……….influenced in part by Garry Kasparov’s book “Deep Thinking”, in which he covers his two chess matches, as the World Champion versus IBM’s computer program, generated by many over time

Lessons for us all, I believe, for the future of our lives….certainly for mine, in it’s 7th phase.. the last and best which is in part referenced, in recent blogs here
