The Lip Balm Syndrome

We’ve all had experiences beating out head against a wall over and over. Or as stated by Albert Einstein, “Insanity—doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” I recently experienced this with what I call the lip balm syndrome.

Here’s what happened. I reached for a lip balm to open it. I wasn’t looking at it but tried to pull the cap off. It wouldn’t budge. I tried harder, applying more pressure. No result. Finally, I had the inpiration to look at the cussed thing. I was trying to open the wrong end.
The lesson: rather than doing the same thing over and over, try something different like using the senses I had been given
