When I was a child, my parents took me and my sister to the MOMA museum. You can guess that as a little girl I preferred to play outside… so to keep us busy they taught us to play a game. Every different room we had to pick our favorite piece. we had to explain to the other family members why this one is our favorite and what we see in the picture, so we had to really look at this picture. 12 years later I am going to the MOMA again, this time I am alone, walking through the different galleries, and playing the same game.
Why? You surely ask yourself. Because there are so many great pictures, and I want to see them all! But this desire to “eat the whole cake” leaves us with nothing, we end up not remembering a single picture in the minute we walk out the museum.
Ironically I find that life is quite similar. Sometimes when we see all the opportunities or the things we want to do, we get confused, we start a little from each and end up with a little of nothing and basically with nothing we really specialize at.
Life is like a little girl in a museum, you cannot truly enjoy everything, all the time. Instead- you should find something you like the most, find your single special art piece in the room, in this part of your life: learn and FOCUS on this one thing you choose.
