A slice of a pie, or of the theoretical pies of success, happiness, or knowledge, can look extremely appetizing and will lure us with promises of fantastic flavor and complete satisfaction. Even though we know that ultimate flavor and satisfaction cannot be realistically obtained, at least not permanently, we want to believe it can and will snatch as large a piece of pie we can hold in our mouths and hands. There is nothing wrong with having a dream or dreams focussed on a single pie, but we may find that if we spread our wants and expectations over a variety of pies, we’ll have a better chance at a larger slice of several pies and won’t end up with no pie at all if we’ve placed all those hopes and expectations on just one kind. It is also important to carefully evaluate how large we’d like our slice to be; if we bite off more than we can chew we may find ourselves suffocated in responsibilities or drowned in so much of what we desired in the first place that we cannot enjoy it. On the other hand, if we don’t take as much pie as we could we may wind up feeling bereft and dissatified. It comes down to choices, and knowing yourself. What will you do to get things right and not just get things?
