… is an excellent line in the song “Archer” by the Ballroom Thieves that really got me thinking today.
And my message is simple: Archers never made good kings.
Which in my own head means simply you can’t be on the defensive and the offensive at the same time.
Which means simply, stop trying to get better when you are healing.
And if that doesn’t help, simply, knock it the hell off.
Maybe I’m reading too much into one line, but hey, I was an English/Communications major. The curtains are blue for a reason.
So, what to do with that advice? Like I said, simple. Take your time and do one thing at a time. Be an archer – aim for your target. Or be a king – revel in your good fortune. But you can’t do both. You can’t grow and be content at the same time.
Remember that for the New Year season. It’s okay to try and be a better person, and it’s also great to be grateful for what you have and want things to slow down for a minute.
It’s good to have goals but don’t pull the string too taut on your dreams. You never know, you might be king one day.
