Most people don't have the guts to say it out loud, but you can see it in their faces and feel it in the tone of their voice. Desire for change sometimes just resembles madness, specially if you claim the driving seat yourself. What changes when you set for cruise control and just relax?
You'll probably fall asleep and crash into something you did not see coming.
On the other hand, when you have a clear vision of the road ahead, you simply know that the trip is worth it (even if you fail). Specially if you happen to encounter other fellow travelers willing to give you a map.
We're not taught this thinking process in school, and that's ok for now. Perhaps education is just waiting for a wacko to come by and disturb the classroom.
