|Domestic Cat: I hunt therefore I am.|
- Hunger/Boredom (mostly likely boredom)
- Opportunity Spotted (something to hunt)
- Goal Set (decide to nail a target)
- Appraisal of Situation (best launch point)
- Maximize the Utility of Personal Surroundings (take up a different position if necessary/able)
- Wait, Patiently, Until Goal is Within Reach (watch, listen, and learn)
- Posturing (align yourself with target)
- Pounce (leap of faith)
- If Goal Achieved (target is met) go to step 10, otherwise Repeat steps 1- 9, Possibly with the same target.
- If Hungry, Eat. Otherwise - Let Go and Repeat steps 1 - 9, Possibly with the same target.
In 2012 I think I'll try to take a page or two from my cat.
