Recently, I came across a sign informing…
You are not stuck in traffic.
You are traffic
Get a bike. Break Free!
I thought this sign was brilliant, not least because my bicycle is my preferred means of transport for journeys under 10km or so. But it is also a handy reminder that we humans tend to blame problems on others, and then expect others to solve those problems for us. Sadly, those others often have the same thoughts as us! They blame us and everyone else—but themselves—for the same problem. Meanwhile, everyone is waiting for someone else to solve the problem. But the truth is, if we are the problem, we also have a responsibility to solve the problem.
