Why We Conform

This is some pure motivation. It hit home real hard. It’s kinda strange how this article saddens me so much about the life we’re forced to live, but also makes me feel so liberated at the same time. Wonderful writing, Mike. I’ll come back continually to this article in times when I need motivation.

I would like to add a poem by Robert Frost for fellow entrepreneurs and founders. (I’m sure you’ve read this in middle school)

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Like what you read? Give Simon Peter Debbarma a round of applause.
