MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Take the newer road



THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.
By Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Stop following the tracks of others once you feel you’ve mastered enough work and experience; that’s their journey with their tracks. When you have so many on the same path you’re really shortchanging yourself and eventually, you’re just like them: afraid to break away from societal conditions.

Always make it a great day and Make. Your. Own. Tracks.
