Same as it ever was, or is it?
So you say it’s the “same ol’, same ol.” You’ve already covered this territory. It’s identical to what you’ve heard before. What makes this time different?
On the surface, many programs, systems and processes are identical to each other. Cake recipes have a base set of ingredients which are identical whether it’s chocolate, strawberry or lemon. You bake it for 40 minutes at 375 degrees and voila this cake turned out like the previous 100 cakes.
So, maybe the recipe is the same but the way you approach it doesn’t have to be identical. Heraclitus says: “No man ever steps into the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.”
If you approach today with a beginner’s mind, even it’s the identical house, identical family, identical commute, identical coworker and identical boss from the day before, you might receive something greater than you ever imagined.
