The Inestemable Mike Flynn

…writes about courage, sloth and the nature of human beings.

Way better than anything I could say. I’m going to print his diagram out and explain it to the kids.

Will only add that his point about sloth being the opposite of courage is something I never think about, as I waste my life away in inaction. Much easier to sit here, collect a paycheck, take an incoming phone call once in a while, and maybe do something valuable just often enough to make my employers think I’m worth the trouble. And that’s the least of it – I can go home, maybe make some dinner or read a book to a kid, but more often than not, grab a quick nap or surf the web or otherwise become unavailable to this small crowd of people I’m supposed to love.

I am slothful. I am a coward. Lord help me!
