Thinking and Learening in the New year

“We aren't thinking out of the box enough.”
                           - Stansfield Turner

As I watched everyone go back to work in this new year of 2011, the thought struck me that we are mostly similar to hamsters in a wheel.  We run and run and run and we get to the same place, over and over again.  When we're filled with the vitality of youth we have visions and ideals.  Everything we do we look at how to do better, because it's new.

But after a few years we find it easier to give in to the momentum of fighting the wheel.  We get on, get our work done, and hop off.  Same thing yesterday, same thing tomorrow.

I don't know what 2011 will bring, but let's promise ourselves one thing.  Let's promise ourselves to do one significant thing better. Let's break out of the wheel.
