You have to pick a side

You have to pick a side.

Because if you don’t, we will say that you are afraid to speak out.
Because if you don’t, we will say that you don’t care.
Because if you don’t, we will decide what your side is.
Because if you don’t, we will keep screaming at you until you do.

Who fills the agenda of your mind?

Imagine there is a daily meeting in your head. All your brainy workers are sitting around a table. On this table is an agenda, filled with points to discuss.

After the meeting your brainy workers will start to work with whatever was in your agenda.

Who fills this agenda of your mind?

The weekly news? The noise of social media? Your friends or colleagues?

Or you?

What you are thinking about might be more important than what you are thinking about it.

Hare: It’s not fair

“You know, I have won countless races. Sprints and marathons. But every interview they always need to go back and ask me about this one race with Tortoise. How I felt after? What I would do differently? I’m so tired of these questions.”

(sigh)

“And you know what. After our race, Tortoise never offered me a rematch. In fact, he never raced again, ever. And every interview they still ask him questions about this one race! About his genius plan. About his healthy food habits. About his strength of character.”

“It’s not fair.”
