When a cell phone call goes dead or a television channel would turn to static, what is your response? Hopefully it is not to continue observing nothing and you would instead opt to reconnect.
As you aim to learn and grow in life, we may at times prefer the static over the harsher stimulus we might come across by staying connected. Static is easy and repetitive, almost luring you to hold still rather than continuing to learn through life. A constant barrage of noise can become overwhelming though, having us wanting us to again turn it all off.
As with most things, finding a balance between stifling noises and boring static is the key. There is a time to fully engage and a time to back it down a bit. Your life’s story and your significance as a contributor will be determined by the balance you temper. In the midst of navigating between the two, there is an ultimate path for your success. By applied learning practice, you will discover the better way. Choose to direct yourself wisely and conscientiously rather than simply remain to roam.
“That which is static and repetitive is boring. That which is dynamic and random is confusing. In between lies art.” — John Locke —
