Hold Your Tongue

In recent times, how often have you heard (or uttered) this virulent query: How’s that workin’ out for ya?

Of course, mindlessly repeating often used phrases may keep you connected to your group, or gang, or generation ‘whatever’; doing so, however, is not the path to original work.

Suggestion: the next time you catch yourself about to enter the land of cliches—stop. Reconsider and articulate in your own words. If none come, then this is your wake up call. You have been absorbed. Fortunately, knowing that this situation exists is also the catalyst for extricating yourself from the morass of mass social conditioning.
