Today is the day to talk about some new standards for ourselves and to be a new standard ourselves.  It's time to stop being the best form of someone elses idea and to truly express the best form of our own ideas.  A standard in the past has been something that all of society can be held to.  A point of aspiration but also a limitation in a sense.  If all you can do to succeed is to be the best and set a new standard then life simply gets more difficult for the next person to achieve significance in that area of success.  What if a standard was about how well you express yourself, and the depth of experience you gained in doing so?  What if all walks of life were appreciated as individual instances and deviation from the norm was encouraged so that we can learn from those who have chosen to strike out into new territory? It is time my friends.
