The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before.

~~ Albert Einstein

I found this quote on a graphic from An Uncloudy Day and it really resonated with me. I ride BART to work and back each day. BART is the rapid transit system in San Francisco. I often watch people. It’s one of my hobbies. Watching movements, mannerisms, what people do in their commute.

When I watch a lot of people I notice that they are playing video games on their smartphones or tablets, or are watching the latest TV show or something to that effect. The other common practice is sleeping. Honestly, I have done some resting of my eyes as well. I often get to bed late and get up early to work before I leave the house to go to my career job in the city. Some days I am exhausted and need to take a shut eye. Sometimes I meditate with my eyes closed as well. So, I don’t judge those that are asleep, I don’t know what they’ve done all night or how long they slept, if at all.

The point is I see a lot of people do the same thing as everyone else. They are essentially following the crowd. Doing nothing but wasting the time. I am not perfect, but I try to spend this idle time learning something, listening to podcasts, reading, doing social media posts, etc.

The point of the quote is that if you don’t set yourself apart from the crowd, you will usually go no further than those around you. It’s a fact.

If you walk alone you are likely to go places no one, at least in your peer group, has ever been before. You have to make the conscious effort to do things that will take you someplace away from the crowd.

Do you want to be different than what you are now? Do you want to be different than the people you hang around with?  If you do, than you have to do something different. You have to walk alone and away from the crowd. To go where you’ve never been before, you have to do what you’ve never done before.
