Groundhog day all over again

 If you haven’t seen the 1993 film Groundhog Day  – see it.  It’s a great movie and it operates on many levels that a casual viewer will miss.

The plot line goes something like this… 

Bill Murray plays Phil Connor- egocentric weatherman in Pittsburgh.   He is assigned to cover “Groundhog Day,” in Punxsutawney Pa   Phil (Bill) considers this gig way beneath him and gives out HUGE doses of attitude.    

He covers the event. the groundhog sees his shadow and that should be the end of it.   Cut to the plot device  – Phil/Bill wakes up the next day to find…. that it is Groundhog Day all over again.  

The rest of the movie is Phil/Bill reliving the same day over and over (and over) again.  Nobody else around him knows that the same day is being repeated ad nauseum.   He starts to think he has gone crazy and it resolves with Phil/Bill learning how to take advantage of the knowledge he gets from reliving the same day. 


Director Harold Ramis estimated that the Phil / Bill Murray character took 30 – 40 years to get it right! 


Toward the end of a 30 – 40 year period, he knows just what people will do, say and think. Instead of ‘wising up’ he uses the knowledge to dig himself deeper in the “endless” time loop!     Its’ a cute and entertaining comedy with a dark subplot.  

What’s the take away for you… 

Like the Bill Murray / Phil character, it’s too easy to get stuck living the ‘same day’ over and over again.  Think about it…  how much of your life is Groundhog Day all over again?  I’d be willing to bet that there’s a list of things a yard long that you do the same way over and over again every day with out learning a damned thing from it….

 You send out menus, use door hangers, Val Pak coupons and yellow page ads the same way day after day after day. Pretty much like the Murray character with the next day a repeat of the day before and the day before and the day before that.  


Unless you break the cycle you’ll live an endless loop of same old same old until you either get too old or die.   

Too heavy for Pizzeria Owners??  NO, It a’int.   

Ok campers… what’s the point?  You can go through the rest of your life repeating the same day over and over  (and over). Or you can grab yourself by the proverbial collar and get on with the business of creating the life you want.
