A Short Assessment While Approaching a Dark Alley …


Alley - Dark - Morguefile.comYou are alone … at night … in a strange location.

That was context … now for content.

You come upon a dark alley, which means you cannot see into the alley well, probably just dim shapes and shadows with nothing to distinguish what is actually there from what you might imagine to be there.   You cannot identify anything without doubt.

So … how do you describe what you do next?

(Short pause while you consider your one-short-sentence response)

Did you choose any of these responses?

Go UP the alley …

Go DOWN the alley …

Go INTO the alley …

Go THROUGH the alley …

Peer at the alley from the safety of the weil-lit and traveled street …

Lurk in the alley waiting for someone to wander in …

Do something completely different …

Note the subtle differences between some of these possibilities.   Consider what your response says about your world view.   No further discussion from my end at this point, but you can bet we will return to the dark alley.  As always, I  would enjoy any comments, especially if you did something other than the options on this list.

Yes, the alley is a life analogy, especially when our futures lie unknown and unseen ahead of us.  Ya guessed it:) …

It is slightly possible that I have completed too many personality, value, interest, and aptitude assessments this past week.

Pondering a faux-Zen question deeply in the Heartland ….
