From the journal of the lost colony

Progress DefinedThe destination dictated that we move forward, ever onward.  “No time to rest,” as the chief put it.

Could it be said that our language spoke for us, that we were never at liberty to pause, to consider our position, and perhaps to change our course? Perhaps we should have reversed ourselves, gone back the way we came, before it was too late.

I told M. Archer that we were making a mistake.  But she, like the others, did not listen.  It was imperative, urgent and compelling that we go forward, only forward, as she reminded me.

Too soon, we were lost.

About this post:  I liked the voice of the narrator in this piece.  Starting from the definition of progress, you can imagine a whole group of people locked into a particular progression.  Not unlike many meetings in the world of business
