Get Out of that Rut

Oscar Wilde said, “Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.”

So stop getting up at 6:05.

Get up at 5:06.

Walk a mile at dawn.

Find a new way to drive to work.

Switch chores with your spouse next Saturday.

Buy a wok.

Study wildflowers.

Stay up alone all night.

Read to the blind.

Start counting brown-eyed blondes or blonds.

Subscribe to an out of town paper.

Canoe at midnight.

Don’t write your congressman, take a whole scout troop to go see him.

Learn to speak Italian.

Teach some kid the thing you do best.

Listen to two hours of uninterrupted Mozart.

Take up aerobic dancing.

Leap out of that rut.

Savor life.

Remember, we only pass this way once.
