Built 151 years ago, the London Underground Subway System contains several stations with rounded platforms, constructed on a curve to avoid important structural foundations in the city. The railway runs straighter than these platforms, hence the unsafe gap between the two.
The design of the London Underground illustrates a simple principle of personal development: there’s a gap between where we stand and where we’re trying to go.
We must be aware of this space in our lives and make the necessary adjustments to move forward.
