The Road Not Taken

Young Robert Frost


I just finished reading “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki.  I considered the book an easy read and one of those you can read cover-to-cover in a few days.  There are many points in this New York Times Bestseller I found very interesting and the book did generate some “bulb lighting” moments for me.  In a later blog, I will analyze some of the highlights as it pertains to business and entrepreneurship.
For now and because it’s the weekend, I wanted to share with you something Robert Kiyosaki and I have in common.  We both have a deep fondness for a poem written by Robert Frost.  Many of you know of it.  For me, the beautifully written poem exemplifies entrepreneurship–the good, the bad and the ugly.
So, on this hot summer day in Southern California, I salute all entrepreneurs out there with these inspiring words.


The Road Not Taken


TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, 
And sorry I could not travel both 
And be one traveler, long I stood 
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, 
And having perhaps the better claim, 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay 
In leaves no step had trodden black. 
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, 
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference.


Robert Frost / 1915
