Unknowing is not easy

“You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

As you probably know, this is the statement that Morpheus makes to Neo during their first conversation in “The Matrix”.  Did you also know that you may have this conversation with yourself many times a day?  The power to choose is available to all but not all accept the responsibility.

My goal is to be descriptive and not prescriptive so here are some interesting resources that you can choose to investigate (red pill) or ignore (blue pill)…the choice is yours.

  • Locus of Control (this sums it up)







You now bear the burden of “knowing”and you can’t go back, no matter how challenging it might be. It can be overwhelming to acknowledge that you can change your own behavior and, in turn, change other’s as well.  We all operate in the same complex adaptive system so that means that every “agent’s” action causes ripples in the ecosystem and we never really know how others will react because we are not in control (that is whole other post in itself).

So which pill will it be?
