Very few good stories, momentous developments and life affirming changes start with inaction, yet as humans we are intrinsically hard wired to seek out the path of least resistance. In a world that thrives on a knowledge currency, do many of us regularly miss the opportunity to grow, prosper and develop due to a hard wired inactivity? I wrote this haiku to summarise my thoughts.
Setting the bar low,
We can never face defeat,
Do we ever grow?
