Good luck with that Mister…
Yesterday’s post was dead serious. Our educational system is being re-written as I type these words. But it’s happening by default. Not by design. There’s no clear vision.
I’m placing a stake in the ground. Mid Life Celebration, LLC is dedicated to driving the teaching and learning – of mental responsibility, physical responsibility, spiritual (emotional) responsibility, financial (career) responsibility and personal-life administration responsibility – from pre-school through college graduation.
Yes, I have a dream where children enter adulthood equipped with years of practical, common sense life skills.
The thesis being: With every one of Life’s Big Choices comes a consequence.
Follow the path of The Herd, or follow the path of The Movement.
Mid Life Celebration, jeff noel, and The Blog Whisperer, all define The Herd as:
- Status Quo
- Risk Free
It’s the common path. The massive path. The unexamined path. The path that takes us, unknowingly, to fear and regret.
Yesterday, the proverbial fork in the road…
- One path – The Herd
- Other path – The Movement
This is going to be fun as April Fool’s Day approaches. After two solid years of daily Five-a-Day blogging, Mid Life Celebration embarks on a different path. Same destination.
For the Census, but for The Movement…
This is the first (shorter) of two ( longer, below) Midlife Celebration posts today.
To me, a midlife crisis is defined as that moment when your wake-up call arrives and you realize that everything you worked so hard to achieve is essentially superficial.
And it’s the fork in the road. We must choose – follow The Herd, or join The Movement.
Wall Street Journal headline 3 weeks ago…
Is The Herd a bunch of wusses?
Maybe. Seems the WSJ is asking the same question.
What is the Herd? Well, for starter’s, The Herd is the opposite of remarkable.
Then what’s the opposite of remarkable?
