“Where there is no vision, the people perish” – Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
As you may or may now know, I’ve kind of been haphazardly growing out my hair. Semi-inspired by my trip to Korea last summer. I’ve been kind of enthused recently about how long it’s gotten, but I did need a trim so I went for a cut. The problem is, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted it to look like; I had no vision. So I just told them to take an inch off the sides, and leave the back long.
I come home and Jieun stares at me and says, “You have a mullet.” She repeated the word mullet about 10 times that evening. So I was forced to get it recut the next day. But yeah, for about 20 hours, I had a mullet. Good times.
The lesson of the story is, as with many things in life, it’s important to have vision, direction as to where you’re going. Otherwise, you put your fate in someone else’s hands and chaos may ensue.
