When you next get a chance, read the lyrics to John Lennon's 1971 song "Imagine". I have to be honest, it really gets me thinking. What if the world was a tad simpler, slower, nicer - how different would everything be ? Everyday I see how people are in such a hurry whether by car or foot. If these people were solving world hunger or gaining us world peace, then I would gladly make a gap for them to pass. But I have watched these people and often they are rushing off to get their next shot of espresso, or rushing to their next aerobics workout. So I have to ask what is the rushing actually for ? I am a person with a healthy sense of urgency for my work, my Clients and those I hold dear, but I do not see the need to drive over people to accomplish my goals whether big or small.
Maybe I am also just a 'dreamer' as John Lennon says and perhaps there will be more and more of us that feel that this world can be a better place for us all.
