“The Road Less Travelled” by M. Scott Peck starts with a poem that begins…
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, …
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Many people have come back from their summer holiday where they could stop and be different.
What now? Do you continue on your old road or try a different one?
Each road will affect you. The effect of the old road is sameness. The effect of the new road…?
Which fork in the road will you take?
Each time we make a decision, big or small, we are navigating a fork in the road. Each time, we choose sameness or difference.
Same vegetables as last week, or something different?
Same way to treat John this week, or try something different?
Same plan for the weekend, or try something different?
Same time to go to work, or try another time?
My best wishes, Paul
