“There is nothing more awful, insulting, and depressing than banality.”
We are still in the early part of the new month of the new year. The world should be filled with hope and be aspirational as well as inspirational. Yet, there are some who insist on staying on a steady course. Sure, there is nothing horribly wrong with that. If something is working, so so many, why tinker with it? Stick with what works, right? Yet, that thinking seems so ho hum. I completely agree that when things are going wrong you need to steady the ship and find what works and stick with it. For a while. If you let things stay the same for too long you may fall back into mediocrity at best and catastrophe at worse.
If you have to make a new year’s resolution, then do so to combat banality. Its not a common resolution. And may be too abstract especially in comparison to losing weight or traveling more. Yet, fighting against banality may be life changing in a way that these other resolutions cannot be. Banality does shake things up. Doesn’t necessarily create environments for creative thoughts and solutions. Thus, as the new year starts to really get underway enthusiasm for the possible should override the tendency for the banal. or so we can hope.
