If you’ve visited this blog before, you know I am a fan of Star Trek. I’ve been watching Star Trek Next Generation on BBC America. It’s weird, I can watch STNG on Hulu. I can watch it on the DVDs I own. Still, there is something about watching it when someone else is putting it in front of me. It’s like watching the Twilight Zone Marathon on New Year’s Eve. Anyway, what I’m watching, where I’m watching it and why, are not the point. The point is I have a one-liner.
This comes from Star Trek Next Generation, Episode 49 – “Evolution” when Paul Stubbs is speaking to Wesley Crusher:
“You will never come up against a greater adversary than your own potential.”
Dr. Stubbs offered this as a warning. I could blather on about various personal attempts to achieve some aspect of my potential, but I’m going to turn this on something else. I’m going to go back to when I was watching that Twilight Zone Marathon and suggest that old man 2019 is giving some advice to baby 2020. Despite the fact that we are only two-thirds of the way through, I’d say 2020 isn’t going to make it.
