A couple months ago I came upon a blog post that asked the question, “What is your default position?” Simple question and not anything new or earth shattering, yet somehow, phrased in this way it struck a chord with me and I’ve been unable to let it go.

The fractal above reminds me of the internal workings of a lock, an x-ray view so to speak. It’s not quite lined up and the lock, not in alignment, will not open. A correctly aligned default position opens the world to us. An incorrectly aligned default position invites frustration, anger and eventual bitterness. Do you know your default position? Is it aligned?
