The metaphor of the busy airport: Be deliberate

Walking through busy airport this morning I came to think of a hokey metaphor. There are 3 types of people in this world; people who are actively going somewhere, people who are actively going nowhere, and people who are actively doing neither.

The first type of person is not getting in your way because they are in the flow of people. The second type of person have taken a spot somewhere out of the way and are just enjoying being.

The people who caused the problems where are those who are in the flow of people and slow down, stop, dawdle and generally slow things down.

So the moral of the story is you can be actively going somewhere or you can be actively going nowhere and won't be getting in anyone's way.

But it's when you think you're going somewhere and not really giving it all of your energy that really you just getting in the way. So be deliberate.
