Its the weekend so I’m off out to play with friends tonight – yes, I know, I do that a lot! I’m very lucky!
So today I’ll give you a great story instead:
A man meets a sage on the road. The man asks the the sage, “Which way is success?” The bearded wiseman doesn’t speak but points to a place off in the distance. The man, thrilled by the prospect of quick and easy success, rushes off in the appropriate direction. Suddenly, there comes a loud “SPLAT.” Eventually, the man limps back, tattered and bruised, assuming he must have misinterpreted the message. He repeats his question to the guru, who again points silently in the same direction. The man obediently walks off once more. This time the splat is deafening, and when the man crawls back, he is bloody, broken, tattered, and really pissed off! “I asked you which way is success,” he screams at the guru. “I followed the direction you indicated. And all I got was splat! No more of this pointing.Talk to me!” The guru sighed loudly and said “Success IS that way. … Just a little PAST the splat.”
Keep going folks – sometimes SPLAT is actually a sign you’re on the right track!
