One of the definitions of a rut is "a grave with both ends kicked out". When you think about it that way, as well as through the perspective of Ben Franklin, who said “Many people die at twenty five and aren't buried until they are seventy five.”, it helps us to get motivated and really LIVE a life on purpose!

So true, Kevin! In the Air Force I used to brief my troops (many right out of high school) that gossip was the most destructive force in the Universe. A bit of an exaggeration, sure, but I wanted to make very clear that such behavior was entirely counter to good order and discipline and wouldn't be tolerated. And that, for the one being gossiped about (once they found out what was being said about them - usually false) it actually created a less productive, less safe and hostile work environment. Good order and discipline is absolutely essential to effective mission completion, regardless of the organization. Of course, it's then up to each individual to continuously draw upon their own integrity to ensure such behaviors are immediately identified and curtailed. Because telling secrets and talking about people behind their backs is something most of us learn as children and consider to be perfectly normal social interaction, unfortunately. And yes, you're so right - such behavior gets both parties "dirty". (<;
