Teasing, the other day I called my oldest daughter average. She was jokingly insulted but nevertheless disgusted at the word. Why is it this way? Why is average not a good thing to be when you are 15 or 34 for that matter or 84? We strive to be above it, we steer to go around it and we never want to be below it. Who makes up averages anyways, people sitting in statistics classes? On average 1 out of 5 people think about being average on regular basis...I just made that up. Maybe if we didn't compare ourselves to anything or anyone there would be no such thing, no such pressure to be more, do more or feel more. But maybe that's just average thinking altogether.
