Most of us are famil­iar with the def­i­n­i­tion of insan­ity … doing the same thing over and over again and expect­ing a dif­fer­ent result. The know­ing smile we give when we hear it, though, may just be a clue that despite our under­stand­ing the def­i­n­i­tion, we rec­og­nize our own ten­den­cies to do just that. The good news is that we are bio­log­i­cally pre­dis­posed to this behav­ior, so it doesn’t mean we’re insane; it means we’re human.

I see myself play­ing three dis­tinct roles in my life: pas­sive (pow­er­less) observer, con­scious observer, and pow­er­ful cre­ator. This morn­ing in an exchange with a very dear friend, I used a roller­coaster ride to describe the three roles.
