"When you only listen to the top 40, you're letting the crowd decide what you hear. And if you consume nothing but the most liked, the most upvoted, the most viral, the most popular, you've abdicated responsibility for your incoming. Most people only read bestselling books. That's what makes them bestsellers, after all. Popular is not the same as important, or often, not the same as good."
I recently spoke at a church in Minnesota. Upon landing at the airport, Michelle and I proceeded to get our rental car. I stood by the driver side of the car as I signed the papers to conclude the transaction. My wife opened the passenger side door and found something left in the car from the people before us. As you can see in the image above, it was an oddly shaped brush.
My wife, never one to be bashful, quickly informed our rental car associate that somebody left their brush in our car. Our associate didn’t seemed phased by this and replied that it was supposed to be there.
“For what?” my wife asked.
“Um… snow,” came the reply.
Michelle and I both laughed. The lady helping us didn’t. We tried to explain that we’re from Arizona and we don’t use those. In fact, we’ve never used one on a car before. Our rental employee seriously had a hard time wrapping her mind around what we just shared with her and continued to give us a strange look.
