There are so many metaphors used for dealing with life. Some reflect engaging with nature (swimming upstream or going with the flow), living in the world of sport (in the 9th innings or injury time) or even music (the fat lady singing and all that). But in this networked world that we now live in it seems apt that there should be one that relates to technology. Below is one I fell upon the other day:
"Just as the Ctrl-Alt-Del keys are used to interrupt the operation of a malfunctioning program on your computer, sometimes, we too, need to interrupt our mind by exercising Ctrl-Alt-Del.
Ctrl (Control): Take control of your life, take 100% responsibility and clearly understand what you want.
Alt (Alternate): Look for alternatives to get different results. See things with a different perspective.
Del (Delete): Delete all negativity in your life including attitudes and habits that are not working for you."
Quite an interesting way of putting it, I'd say.
