A Good Goat'll Do That!

I ate goat yesterday. Now, I may have had goat in the past considering some of the places I’ve dined (there was a meal at a diner in Hawaii that looked NOTHING like the picture on the big display behind the counter), but it’s the first time I had actually ordered goat.

Trying something new can be scary. You don’t know what to expect, you don’t know how to act, you don’t know what the results will be.

A recent story noted that 80% of the time we wear 20% of our clothes; the Pareto Principle, the 80/20 Rule, at work again.

We fall into habits that rule our lives.

Stepping even a little of the way out of a habit, coloring outside the lines just a bit, can have wonderful results.

There’s evidence that says that most of us park in the same space at work most of the time. Parking in a different space creates new neural pathways in our brains and makes us smarter.

What new thing will you try today?

(If you get a chance to try the goat at The Mint restaurant in Chapel Hill, try it. Its’ good and I’d order it again.)
