Bedtime stories for my daughter: Birds

It has been said, “The early bird gets the worm.”

I say to you, “The late owl gets the rodent.”

The initial phrase was coined to encourage getting up early as a measure of success. I can see that being the case in an agricultural environment.

We moved from agriculture to manufacturing to technology where time is fluid, electricity is plentiful and success is no longer measured by how early you rise.

I will continue to be the bird. You continue being the owl. I’ll see you before the sun rises.
