Everyone knows the fable of the monkey and the bananas – he couldn’t get his hand out of the jar because he was holding too many bananas, making his hand too bulky to remove from the narrow container.

Now Dr. Drubin offers a quick 12-step program designed to help you see which bananas in your life are expendable, and how to drop them. Such tips include:
– If you want to find gold, you’re going to have to lift some rocks.
– Always work on your “dash” of life – the only time between birth and death that you have control over.
