Good day everyone, hope you are enjoying
your day. As I was going along through
the streets of Lagos, with its "glorious" traffic,
I noticed the driving styles of motorists and
a phrase just came to me, "riding the line".
Hmm, where did I hear that from? It sounded
so familiar that I decided to check up on it? I ‘googled’ it, went through the
dictionary and guess what? The inspiration came from within me.Really?!?!
Wow!!! As it has inspired me, it seems only fair that I explain and possibly
inspire you too.
Most roads have lines distinguishing one lane of traffic from the other. There
is however always someone who decides to drive right in the middle of the
road, halfway on each side. Seriously?!?! They take up the whole road
without a care for others they share it with. By driving on the midpoint,
right over the line, they are ‘riding the line’.
I have considered a few theories that should go with riding the line
· There has to be at least 2 possible options (lanes) to take
· These lanes are such that by taking one, you would likely forfeit the
other and whatever benefits you may glean from there (traffic just
starts to move right after you left the lane!!)
· Even if you miss an original opportunity, you may be able to get
back on that lane
· There are absolutely no guarantees that the lane you pick is the
right one or even the most profitable
Riding the line is a tale of indecisiveness; one’s inability to make a choice;
you want a hand in everything without committing to anything. It is
assumed we all have something we aspire to;notoriety or infamy, renown
or preeminence. You cannot get there if there is no there to get to; set
your goal. With your target in sight, how do you attain that goal?
Have you got that? Good. Next, how do you get what you need
(I am assuming we are law abiding citizens and nothing would be
considered criminal) to get you to your goal?
For someone who aspires to be a dancer, I would not recommend courses
For everything we aspire to be, we need to learn the ins and outs and tools
of the trade, polishing off our rough edges and preparing ourselves for our
target; one thing that is true is that no matter what prize we are reaching
for it is going to take time. The greatest people of industry today did not
attain success overnight; it took time, dedication and passion.
If you know where you are going to, pick a lane that will take you to your
destination. Acquire the traits and skills you will need to excel at your
destination, learning from someone who knows and is willing to teach you.
It might be a slow process but the alternative may be disastrously long, with
no guarantees to success and certainly no hope of ever getting to your
expected end. Polish up for the ride ahead, you want to be ready when
you reach your destination.
