Even in prison, you can carve out a profession – So whats your excuse?

Never let the world around you put you down. It’s what you do with what you have that counts. Let me illustrate this  with a real life example I came across recently:

Robert Stroud, known as the ‘Birdman’ who, from watching birds out his cell window, through a spectacular career of finagling and make do, fabricated a laboratory and become a leading ornithological contributor (study of birds) to medical literature, all from within prison in Alcatraz.
