More wisdom from the School of Life.
Back when I was a young boy, there was a programme on TV called The Fall & Rise of Reginald Perrin. It was a series that ran from 1976-1979 but was repeated on terrestrial TV during the 80s and 90s.
It concerns the exploits of a Mr Reginald Perrin, a middle-manager who becomes disillusioned with his lot in life and proceeds to fake his own death, in the hope of starting over.
However, each time, with each new life his discontent returns and he finds himself in the same place, sometimes physically, but always spiritually.
It takes a lot of effort to change course, to avoid ploughing the same furrow, but unless we do, the outcome is always going to be the same.
