“No story is a straight line. The geometry of a human life is too imperfect and complex, too distorted by the laughter of time and the bewildering intricacies of fate to admit the straight line into its system of laws.”

Pat Conroy


Is straight line thinking trapping you? How can you nudge yourself out of a thought process that is basically arguing with reality*?


* I once read that one definition of crazy is arguing with reality.

    Oh, I LOVE that quote! And yes, I think I’ve been in a straight-line rut. I’m slowly dragging myself away from the illusion that I’m going anywhere that directly. 🙂
