We never know where we are in the pack. We do know every position in the pack is filled, be it caffeinated coach, lead runner, clumped chasers, or the final fatiguing participant. What is interesting is the route we all “run” is circuitous. Each of us will experience the warmth of a team wrap around or the dejection of being lapped. Both are exactly the same.
The lead and lag in the game of life are the same position.
When we value the position in which we find ourselves, we discover something profound.
