I admit it! I've fallen behind in my blog reader. As I was spending some time catching up this weekend--I came across a post on one of my favorite blogs about taking risks. The author gave several examples--but the one that hit me the most was about fleas. If fleas are left undisturbed in a jar with a lid on--they will learn that they cannot jump higher than the lid. When the lid is later removed--the fleas will not jump out of the jar.
The author of this post relates this to risk-taking. Have I come to the place where I believe I cannot jump out of the jar?
