Just a short post, tI’ve been watching Numb3rs a lot lately. I’m just quite fascinated by the math (yes I’m a math geek), and how so much of human behavior can be mathematically laid out and predicted (according to the show, at least).
One thing that struck me about an episode I saw last week. The guy in the show drew an analogy between life and a rock skipping over water. No matter how quickly it moves from the spot, it leaves an impact. And (my extension), the ripples it leaves extend much further than the impact itself.
I think that analogy is really true. In whatever you do, no matter how short it is, chances are, the impact goes further than you imagine. No matter what you do, where you are, you are making an impact.
The only remaining question is: What kind of impact are you making?
