The Power of Community
We had watched the first episode of the streaming series The Bear. My wife and I didn’t like it, thought it implausible, too chaotic.
However, people in my community who bore with it insisted it was quite good. Respecting their opinions, we returned and just ripped through season one, which was great, and are starting season 2.
The is the power of community, learning from others and being willing to change your mind or adjust your thinking so that your life is improved. This applies to work habits, life choices, purchases, and so forth. One of the great dangers of working remotely consistently is that you have no physical community and often ignore the opportunities for a virtual one.
As an aside: We saw Jerry Seinfeld live at the Beacon Theater in New York a few weeks ago—he was outstanding, suit and tie, all “clean” material, no need to drop F-bombs as if that’s humor—and he said, “My friend told me to watch this new streaming show, it’s fabulous. But it’s hard to get through the first three seasons.”
