Lemmings

Ever think about how you prepare for your day?

Going through the motions? Wake up, shower, dress, jump in the car and off we go.

Lemmings. The migratory animals that follow each other and when one jumps off the cliff, the rest follow, one by one.

Humans are like that too. Creatures of habit and heavily influenced by what every one else does.

When will I think for myself and have the courage to not only not jump off the cliff, but to steer clear of the cliff altogether?

  1. Dear Jeff,

    I may not agree with the religious/philosophical beliefs of Henry David Thoreau, but I do like his quote as it applies to your comments above:

    “If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

    You are right on target!

    Bob
