We can all learn a thing or two from Fox’s The Simpsons. If you’re like me, and you grew up watching the series, you can easily conjure up at least a dozen or so quotes on the spot. With so many memorable moments in the series, it’s hard to pick just one, but this quote about vegetarians vs. meat eaters will always echo loudly in my ears.
While Russel Peters uses this quote to humorously sum up what it’s like to haggle with a store owner (“best price — take it … and go”), I love this call-to-action because it aptly applies to almost every situation in life — big or small — while taking the very human tendency to overthink out of the picture. From running with a brilliant idea you just thought of to deciding to make the most out of a challenge, and fighting back road rage to contemplating if you want to eat that second doughnut, you have the option to take it and go (or not). Accept the situation for what it is, or do something to change it.
