Random Alphabetical Order
In the United States of America most of us speak some form of English.
Most of us who speak English can also recite all 26 letters of our English alphabet.
Perhaps we learned it as a song.
But did you ever wonder why the letters are in that particular order?
I challenge you to memorize those 26 letters in some other random alphabetical order.
I know you can do it.
But the question is why?
Why bother trying something new if the old way works just fine?
I mean, it’s not like one day you or I will forget that the letter before P is O, or G comes after F.
It’s tradition we say to start with A followed by 24 letters and wrap it up with a Z.
But often it’s this nearly blind following of tradition that prevents us from trying something different.
I’m not really going to memorize the alphabet in random alphabetical order. I don’t have a good answer to why?
However, I believe that at least once a week, we should make some change in our life that is different from the habits and traditions we are living with day after day.
Imagine what our lives would be like in a couple of years, once 100 weeks have passed, each with some type of change that we’ve explored.
Are you with me?
