Specialization is for Insects

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

-Robert A. Heinlein

I though about making a big to-do about this post, but the more I wrote the more I took away from the point.  It’s easy to forget the meaning of life when society demands so much of us, and so much importance is placed on ones profession, there are times when you just have to say fuck it.

“Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.”

-John Lennon

I’m gonna level with you guys, I struggle to enjoy the moment, always have.  So lets make an agreement to be well rounded and open to new things and ideas and this will not be another lame quote post.  You can go back and say, I remember that one post Mark did about being awesome, then I was and now I am.

Deal? Great!
