You are addicted to something and I’m going to TELL.
I’m ratting you out because:
- You need to know what you are addicted to and
- You can do something quite dramatic about it which will astonish and amaze your still quite hooked friends.
How long will the trip take, Captain? How much for the voyage? Where is my cabin, boy?
Ah, how folks love their certainty! They swash for it, they buckle for it and they demand it with every McDonald’s french fry they super-size.
Call it what you will but assurance and confidence in direction or activity is all the rage these days and who could blame folks? After all, we are all want the same thing; survival – and it seems to a large part to depend on the continuity of everything pretty much staying as it is from day to day.
Buddy, Can You Spare Some Change?
If we were to ask anyone who regularly accomplishes something how they do it, the first thing they’d tell us they had to overcome was inertia. Their body was doing what science says all bodies at rest normally do ( nothing ) and if they wanted something to happen they had to break that cycle of inactivity first.
Even the people who claim to be activity based can fall into a rut of doing the same thing over and over, albeit with a different activity or location next time. What is important to remember is that the same actions will get the same results and it doesn’t seem to matter much where a person is.
This is why some folks can get married seven times and still not get it right or as one wise dude observed about most resume portrayals: “Do you have twenty years experience or one year’s experience twenty times?” If you’re doing the same thing over and over, it doesn’t count for much.
MOTS – More Of The Same
To really be alive and enjoy the awesome times we live in today we have to avoid becoming stale by constantly reminding ourselves to try new and different things.
New thoughts and the discussions they produce will allow us to continue inventing previously unknown and unimagined lives only when we acknowledge how seriously we are hooked on tomorrow being More Of The Same.
Ah, to imagine a world filled with fresh ideas and people to think of them.
That is a good kind of different.
Thank you, friend.
