As we head off to the Think Tank tonight, we should form some Deep Thoughts on what it means to have one less hour this weekend.
Sigh. I could’ve used a 24 hour Sunday to recharge my batteries. I hope 23 hours is enough to have me up and running again for Monday.
This week’s topic: Let’s go deep and get really philosophical. Would you describe yourself as a “Spring Ahead” or a “Fall Back” kind of person. Since neither term has a real definition, please feel free to get creative with this…
I would like to say that I’m a “Spring Ahead” person. That just sounds so darn positive. A Springer (as I’ve decided we like to call ourselves) is a real go getter. We attack life with a passion others cannot even begin to comprehend.
Those who spring ahead make things happen. They jump at opportunities that aren’t even visible yet. They are ahead of the rest of the herd, and always know which way the wind is blowing. When you spring, you force life to react to you.
As much as I’d like to say that I’m a “Spring Ahead” type, Modern Philosophers, I’ll glumly admit that I’m a textbook “Fall Back”.
I wait for life to happen and then I scurry to react to it. Even then, I’m more than an hour behind, and it takes me forever to even get back on the same lap as life.
A Fallinator, as I assume we’d be called, is lucky to keep his head above water. Which is a good thing because I’d imagine we aren’t very good swimmers. We can doggie paddle and maybe do the back stroke to a degree, but we’re never going to force Michael Phelps to break a sweat.
I don’t think it’s all bad for those who fall back. We’re stable, hard workers, we don’t make rash decisions, and we’re extremely dependable. Because we get that extra hour’s sleep, we are always well rested and ready to put in a hard day’s work.
Plus, we are Deep Thinkers, creative, and just a tad sarcastic. Who wouldn’t want to have those qualities?
What about you, Modern Philosophers?
I’m looking forward to reading how you define those two terms and then classify yourselves. Knock my toga off with your Deep Thoughts and creativity please.
As always, there are no wrong answers in the Think Tank, so write whatever you want to share with the group.
Have a great weekend!
