To an untrained eye, a geode looks pretty much like an ordinary rock. But a trained geologist knows that inside the geode there is a beautiful crystal lining.

Life’s greatest opportunities, like the geode, often come in ordinary packaging.
Do not allow yourself to become such a creature of habit that you simply go through the motions and let life happen to you. Just walking a new route to work, or taking the time to read a book or visiting a museum at lunchtime will stimulate your thought processes and may help you open your mind to new possibilities.
