Stepping Outside of Our Mental Boxes

What do you do for a living? Whether you’re a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker, or someone in between, you likely have thoughts and opinions about things that are outside the realm of whatever it is that brings home the bacon (Mmmm, bacon!), right?

Believe it or not, I actually do have interests outside of the tech realm (though, admittedly, I do often find ways to merge them with tech); once in a while, I may share them with you. You may not agree with me, and that’s fine, but if it actually offends you when I mention something not related to tech or overall geekery, try and be patient — with yourself as well as me — because we’re all really just trying to step outside of our mental boxes from time to time, aren’t we?

Just because your profession happens to center around one thing — and other people may not expect you to stray far from that paradigm — doesn’t mean that you should feel confined to it. I’d like to be among those who would encourage you to step outside of that stifling comfort zone every now and again to experience something different from life whenever you can.
