The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Don’t Let Our Delusion Be Our Downfall …

A while back I wrote a post about the positive benefits of growing older.

While I admit I would still rather stay young – if only so I could see my son grow up for longer – the fact is, it’s not all bad wracking up the years … though I must admit, it would be even better if we treated age like levels of a video game so I could say ‘I’m level 47’.

The reason I’m saying this is because I recently read the quote at the top of the page that I think sums up the different stages of life quite nicely. More than that, it’s also awesome advice … because if we keep basing our decisions on what we think others expect of us rather than what we are personally excited by, we may never find what we were meant to do.

Does it reveal extra depth and nuance on a second reading? No.

Don’t worry, you’ve ensured I’ve known the truth since the first day I worked with you.

Ego is a destructive thing.

And a requirement for working in the ad industry.

Comment by DH

I don’t even have a cubicle, so my ego is suitably repressed.

Comment by John

anyone who has ever got divorced knows that quote is bullshit.

Comment by andy@cynic

That’s a pretty good life lesson to teach our children Robert.

Comment by George

Yep … except everyone talks about our kids because they’re so awesome.

Comment by Rob

I wish someone had told me that when I was 20.

Comment by Pete

I used this quote today. It proved to be highly effective. Thank you Robert.
