Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein, (attributed)US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)
Well, by Einstien's standards for insanity I have been a lunatic several times over during my lifetime, but not as often lately. Each of us must fight the urge to be predictable and wrestling against repeating mistakes is a good place to begin that exercise.
Trying another avenue takes a person through new landscape, dotted with possibilities for things not reachable any other way. A life with a healthy portion of unpredictable adventure seems much better than one littered with predictable repetitive action and reaction.
If I wander into the asylum I hope it is a much more interesting trip than from simply taking the same backward steps over and over. But I would much rather stay sane by being unpredictable enough to try new things, risking new mistakes. And flexible enough to hazard new solutions for old issues.
