"How does anything happen in human history? How do we make the great leaps forward? We take risks. We place our hope in new, heretical ideas. If Albert Einstein had accepted the status quo of physics we could be living in a vastly different world."
This great reminder is from an article on Scottish Independence. It's worth reading just for the inspiring argument Sherry makes about life and the evolution of humanity.
It's the beginning of a new cycle - in the US our summer was marked as over by Labor Day and we are back in work mode. Okay, we're not very good at leaving work mode, but we manage a little fun in the summer months!
Maybe it's time for some risk assessment. Are you risk averse? Are you a risk binger? When was the last time you took a risk? How did it work out? What would you consider a great leap forward?
Yes, homework - absolutely! Summer is OVER.
