Blog Takeaway Idea (From Story)

Being Your Best

This is the takeaway idea from the podcast episode, Ripples: Part 1. If you haven’t listened/read, there may be “spoilers” here, but you need not have read the story to understand the ideas here!

From the Podcast:

The title of the story, “Ripples,” gives a little hint about the takeaway idea I was aiming for here. It’s the idea that all of our choices in life, our actions, and in-actions, big and small, create ripples in our world that extend far beyond the moment; and usually far beyond what we might be able to see or imagine right now.

The story was written as one big analogy, with the idea that the town is like your mind, or your world around you, and you are the Sheriff. You control what comes into your mind, your world, and what doesn’t.
