A Bird in Search of a Cage


It has been said that with great power comes great responsibility.  Is that why so many of us shy away from it?

According to Seth Godin, we are challenged by “so much freedom, so much choice, and so many opportunities to matter.  Yet, our cultural instinct is to find a place to hold us, a spot where we are safe from the responsibility/obligation/opportunity to choose.”

The urge to belong and conform has us seeking out the soft, shady spot somewhere between control and accountability through choice. Because if we choose, then we are responsible, aren’t we?
