The Sandwich Maker

Who do you think of when you hear about Discovery? Does your head fill with images of Magellan or Columbus? Does it fill with Mathematical equations by Einstein or Russel? Maybe for you it’s the Earl of Sandwich and his delightful snack. Whatever it is, we all associate the idea of discovery with someone or some famous idea.

What we don’t do is associate it with ourselves; we don’t make the connection between the joy and power of uncovering some new fact or secret with ourselves. In our minds, it is a task or honor for the great, for the fantastic or the lucky.

Not so. We all make discoveries in our lives on a daily basis, we all take the information we have a re-combine it, we all look at our lives and re-assess our goals. We are all discoverers.

And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
