coming of age story of a young boy on his journey of
discovery about his life's direction. You have to
follow your own path and not just follow that of society.
story is a fable with a pretty direct message. The message
is that the world has a one right way path laid out for
people, but that not all people thrive on this path and some
will find great rewards by intentionally leaving that
routine path to follow their own intuition, and watching for
other, more subtle sign points along the way. By
deliberately ignoring some direct orders, the little boy in
the story makes some unique discoveries that he would not
have experienced if he just stayed on the normal path. Also
of benefit is changing course along the way, being flexible
and open to change as the process of the journey unfolds.
This book is not about pre-planning, setting routines and
doing what others want you to do. It is about going with the
flow, putting aside analysis and worry and just continuing
forward along a not-always-predetermined path.
