When a man doesn’t understand the errand (assignment) he was sent, such a man is prone to live his life in errors, hence, living without a sense of purpose thereby becoming ERRATIC.
To be erratic is to move around without focus nor direction. It’s a state where a person just wanders about with no destination in mind. I was wondering why this is, then I discovered in the middle of the word ERRATIC is the word RAT, then I realized an erratic person is only displaying the qualities of a RAT.
A rat moves from one location to another without a clear destination in mind, its aim is to just land anywhere it gets something to eat and afterwards move again. When a man doesn’t understand his purpose, he will have no choice but to live like a rat, jumping from one course of action to another, doing things that have no connection hence producing no meaningful result on the long run.
Engaging in series of disjointed actions is a sign of being erratic. Discover your purpose and take meaningful steps in that direction. Being erratic will only make you end up like a rat.
