• I think everyone's in a rut. Humans do a thing a certain way once, then for the rest of their lives they feel the need to do it that way, and rationalize that it's the only way. ....The best life advice I ever got was from Shakespeare (Ray Kroc quoted this in his book on how he built the McDonald's empire): "There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures." (Here it is spoken: ........It means that in a life, the moment comes when you must begin your journey. And if you don't recognize that moment, or take it when it arrives, "all the voyage of your life will be bound in shallows and in misery (because, metaphorically speaking, you'll never again get the opportunity to get out to sea and on with your voyage.) And this tells us very clearly, to know your mission and keep your eyes open for your opportunity. It will come. Don't miss it! (And if you do, well there's always that other line Ray Kroc taught to many people: "Would you like fries with that, sir?"
