Diversity – Thought for the day!

“The most dangerous phrase in our language is ‘We’ve always done it this way!’

I read this quote earlier today. It struck me as perhaps being at the root of much of the dissension currently happening in the USA and in various countries around our planet.

Definitely something to not only thinkย about but also to act upon!

Have a great day,

~ Penny

    • I think you should. I also think you should only do those things online (multimedia wise) that bring you pleasure Alastair and let the rest go. I do think you’d make great inspirational videos though. It would involve several of your talents, my very dear friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

      • I’m going to be doing that after the voting for the Photo of the Year is over. I will be taking some time off of blogging so that I can actually find time to do stuff. I have been a bit lacking with my book, so need to get on with that as well. Raynard will only wait so long before finding another victim ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I dislike that phrase, “We have always done it that way.” Why? Because it shows an unwillingness to accept new ideas and change. In my studies of eastern philosophies, there was a word that I cannot remember right now, but it meant that you were stuck in a rut. You created this rut by repeating the same thing over and over and over again. And, as the hole got bigger, it became harder to get out of that rut. I hear this term at my job, and truly dislike it. Change is a way of life. New ideas, and new levels of life in work, and on a personal level can only be attained by throwing out those seven words.

    Where would we be if science, technology, medicine, physics, et al, operated with that phrase as their driving force? Taking chances and risks are what leads to growth on all levels. This phrase holds you back from that growth…don’t you think?

    Great post! xoxo Be well! ^..^
