Tarzan once said “It’s a jungle out there.” Tarzan also said “Don’t let go of vine.” (Invaluable Safety Tip!) There are not too many Tarzan quotes . . . he was a man of few words. But Tarzan was right: it is a jungle out there.
An American anthropologist, Margaret Mead, said: “Of all the peoples whom I have studied, from city dwellers to cliff dwellers, I always find that at least 50 percent would prefer to have at least one jungle between themselves and their mothers-in-law.” In a time where people rave about management skills, management books, management experience, blah-blah-blah, I really like Steven Covey’s quote:
Some folks pride themselves on knowing how to make life work. AND … they will teach you how to make life work, for … $150 per hour? But, not all jungles are the same. What does it mean to make life work? For a heroin addict, making life work looks different from what it looks like for a pathological liar. A heroin addict uses heroin, to make life work. A pathological liar lies, to make life work. Someone who has learned to live in fear and anxiety, has learned to make life work, using their fear and their anxiety. How do you make life work? And how do you make it through the jungle? And … how is that working for you?
