Divergent

“Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always parts of unanimity.”  – Christopher Morley

As social creatures, we’re drawn to agreement and consensus. We espouse analogies about hammering nails that stick out above the others as warnings to blend in (or else). People pleasing, the inability to say no, settling for less….these behaviors pull us away from courageous acts.

It’s OK to be different. In fact, it’s likely to be the one quality that connects you with the next step in your life.

Choose different.

If you’re unhappy or dissatisfied with your results, change your inputs.

Give yourself the gift of changing long-held perceptions.

Maybe be silly for a moment or two.

Because average is overrated and rarely remembered.

Diverge today.
