There’s this wonderful scene in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country between Spock and Kirk where Spock asks, “Is it possible that we have grown so old and inflexible that we have outlived our usefulness?”

It’s a very powerful sentence that forces the men to take a good hard look at their lives and themselves and seriously consider if somewhere along the way they went from adventurers (discovering worlds and breaking new ground) to… “administratives” who follow formula and are “stuck” in their way of doing things (or hanging onto old thoughts just “because”).

That’s where my head is today.
