Ben, I know how you feel.
Sometimes the investments required to improve our lives seem like so much work. Getting out of one’s comfort zone can be disorienting. It’s like the frog that sits in increasingly warmer water – he senses he’s uncomfortable but doesn’t do anything about it, until it’s too late.
But Ben – it’s not too late for you. Some hints: modify your Firefox search box, or install a toolbar. Best of luck.
