In Transit

Planes fly ahead, only backing up to depart. Cars go multiple ways: forward, left, right, and in reverse. Trains go back and forth, repeating they’re steps.

In some ways, people resemble planes, trains, and automobiles.

  • Plane people: These people never reminisce. They only look to the future, taking moonshots and experimenting with possibilities.

  • Car people: These people are adaptable but indecisive, wandering off to the next big thing or looking for shortcuts. They often get lost without GPS.

  • Train people: These people are consistent. They stay on a familiar track and get off at known stops. They’re predictable but even when riding in reverse, they see and accept their past.

People are no different than planes, trains, and automobiles. Everyone lives at their own pace and adopts their own ambition. It’s not uncommon to weave all three modes of transportation into a lifestyle. It’s also possible to pursue none at all. God gave people legs for a reason.
