I am one that loves to people watch, as I am sure most of us are, but I even do so while driving the crazy streets of Dallas. Most of the time I am not looking for anything in particular, but I like to see how people behave when they don't know they are being watched. Does that make me creepy? Could it mean that I am a mobile peeping tom of sorts? I don't think it is fair to qualify such a harmless act, but if you must I am probably a little bit of both.
Now that we got that incessant need to categorize things out of the way, we can dive into the findings of my mobile-peeping research. All aspects of life can be viewed much like that of a science. Observation is necessary in order to form conclusions in regards to experimentation. A few days ago, while observing, I was watching a gentleman driving on on my way to work, and I realized that most people often do not stray from their regular paths. They essentially become creatures of habit with a very predictable pattern. Now you may in fact be one of these creatures that drives the same way home from work, takes the same way to Wal-mart, or that only knows one way to get to your parents house for a visit. The gentleman in this case, stayed true to a street that was obviously backing up and decided to tough it out to risk being tardy to work. I really don't know where he works, but in this particular quadrant of the city there are numerous, possibly faster ways, to get to your destination. Eureka! At this moment I had an epiphany. This lesson could apply many facets of life.
Many people, including myself, often become set in our ways. Like an over-calcified bone, being comfortable for too long could be bad in the long run. The bone would become brittle and weak as time went on causing it to break easily under pressure. In life, we are faced with a substantial amount of pressure that calls for us as people to be flexible in order to avoid potential dangers and such. Theoretically, something as small as changing how you get from point A to point B in a car could make it easier to think analytically about doing the same in your life. Problems will come and go, but how you react to the bumps in the road will determine the worth of your well-being.
According to Rick James, cocaine is a helluva drug but so is thinking. The brain gets off when it is being challenged. I don't want to let mine rot away, so I am going to try to be more flexible daily.
