An Insight Into Average

If you do the same things the same way as everyone else, you’ll get the same results as everyone else. Stands to reason. By definition, therefore, you will be average and the results you get will be average.

Let’s have a look at average. He’s a comfortable enough next -door neighbour alright, but you wouldn’t want him coming to your house too often. Average doesn’t get you drunk; it doesn’t make you laugh, doesn’t make you envious. In fact, average doesn’t really do much, except borrow your lawnmower and bring it back not even properly broken. Average fails to satisfy.
