Abstract: This trio of desiderata is no less valid today than when we were children, but the recipe for success, summarised as ‘early to bed, early to rise’, appears to be too simplistic in a complex world we live in today. And yet, if you ask a hundred people, particularly those of a certain age, when they have started to realise that they are not indestructible any more, what is the most valuable thing in life, the majority would choose health as the most urgent priority. Compared to most countries in the world, Malta is a healthy nation. We are also a happy-go-lucky nation where it seems that some things go reasonably well more through luck than through wise management.
