Do You Consider Yourself Unreasonable?

Quoting George Bernard Shaw: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him. The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

In our society, we more often than not equate one’s unreasonableness with stubbornness or we see that person in a negative light (maybe because he/she doesn’t agree with our stance).

Think about what Shaw is saying. With what do you equate progress?

As for me, the next time someone calls me “unreasonable,” I think I’ll thank him or her.

What do you think, world?

Wake Up Stupid and Stay That Way

Some of us may sense that we have no problem doing this; it comes naturally.

But there is a more serious aspect to this cute little title. It goes to one’s frame of mind.

Be open to anything today, any day. Don’t have preconceived notions about what’s going to happen.

I know – that’s easier said than done.

Listen more than you talk. For some of us, this really is a problem.

Observe and absorb.

Ask questions. Get clarity.

Ask more questions. Refine. Reflect. Reshape.

Now, see what you can discover.
