Discussion Summary

SF Explorer Lynn tells the group about a book that uses the metaphor of a silo to illustrate the way a person may tend to limit their ideas, life patterns and relationships to the 'usual and customary'. Taking risks, moving out of one's comfort zone, and crossing boundaries are seen as good for personal growth vs. remaining stuck in established patterns.

Members offer examples of the limitations posed by compartmentalization from workplace experience and relationships. They agree that branching out to reach new horizons can constitute a hedge against an unforseen life-changing event.
