Eating Metaphor

Much of my reality is defined by metaphors.

I compare learning to eating. Information is gathered, ingested and digested. Some of the information is added to my ego, some of it is excreted and forgotten.

I try not to devote too much time to gathering information and ingesting it. I try to spend more time digesting information.

Blogs, for example. I collect them, I scan them, but I need to absorb them.

I am reminded of people who buy exercise videos and then never take them off the shelf, and of broken New Year's resolutions.

Still, even if we do break resolutions, I believe we have no option but to continue making more resolutions.
