Friend of mine, real smart girl, said something very interesting earlier today that I thought I'd share:

"You become a conformist when you give up on your goals and settle for something that is less than what you really wanted."


#2

So if my goal is to shop at the gap, watch "Friends", and listen to my local top 40 radio station while majoring in business administration at the local community college and driving a Toyota Camry, I'll never have to fear being labeled a conformist!


#3

As long as your not settling for Old Navy and re-runs of Will & Grace, I think you'll make out just fine.


#4

So, aim low (so you'll easily reach the goal) and you'll never be a conformist?


#5

I think that aiming low just so that you can achieve your goals would fall under the category of achieving less than you really wanted. Hence, a conformist.


#6

Remember what they say! ...The un-aimed arrow never misses its target...


#7

"You know you're old when what were once your ambitions, have now turned into regrets."

Don't let that be you.
