Beware of choices that lead to sitting on the sidelines
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 — A few years ago there was a commercial (not sure what it was for) that featured a young woman using social media and the Internet to interact with people and experience life. She was critical of her parents who only had a few friends on Facebook.
While she was discussing the sad state her out-of-touch parents were in, the camera cut to a scene showing them mountain biking with friends. In other words they were participating and interacting in person.
Too many live on the sidelines rather than participating. They skip events, bypass opportunities and create bucket lists because they are too busy, too broke, too shy, too scared or too complacent.
