After laughing out loud at this one, and firmly pushing back memories of ugh-inducing highschool algebra classes that threatened to emerge, the cartoon made me think of the lessons that cantaloupes a.k.a. Mountain Life Lenses™ have to teach us.
On a bad day Carrot Life Lenses™ (Mountain’s polar opposite) can have their head buried in the sand. Carrots can be uber-focused on details that are neither important or strategic. Like not noticing that having 60 cantaloupes is a little odd.
It’s mountains who are likely to say ‘hang on a minute, what’s going on here?!’
Because they can see far ahead, Mountain Life Lenses™ can more easily see the big picture and notice when something is amiss.
Before Mountains get too cocky though, know that every Life Lens™ has its good and bad days. Mountains, on a bad day, can have their heads in the clouds and conversely, not notice the details.
C’est la vie.
