“The reason you have a front lawn?”
“It’s a tradition.”
“Lawns were invented as a way for the landed gentry to demonstrate that they could afford to waste land. By taking the land away from the grazing sheep, they were sending a message to their neighbors. We’re rich, we can happily waste the opportunity to make a few bucks from our front lawn.” – Seth Godin
So if our front lawns are a tradition, what else do we do that is a tradition? But we have labeled it a necessity. Or maybe we even labeled it spiritual.
You don’t have anything like that in your life – or do you?
