The ONLY thing you will ever be really good at, is doing what interrests you the most. Do that all the time and make it a living. It is probably one of the shurest ways to riches. Make a bundle of money this way and invest some of them in biotech companies or give them away to research.

You dont have to work directly in age research to help make the biggest advances in that field. Just fill out your own ecological niche but do it the best you can, and just make shure that it doesn't work against you ultimate goal.

I have found that in life the shortest paht between two points is a zigzag'in line that heads sort of in the right direction.
