#58: Light at the End of the Tunnel

A mountain with a train entering a tunnel on one side and two stick figures entering the tunnel on the opposite side. One stick figure joyously proclaims, "See! We haven't even started yet and I can already see the light!"

The Story Behind Light at the End of the Tunnel

"I can see the light at the end of the tunnel" is an expression that has really solid staying power. I feel like I hear this metaphor at least once a week during work meetings regardless of what company I'm employed at or what industry that company is in. However, every time I hear the phrase the first thing that pops into my mind is the well-worn joke about the light at the end of the tunnel being the light of an oncoming train and not the light at the end of the tunnel.

Plain Text Description of Light at the End of the Tunnel

A mountain with a train entering a tunnel on one side and two stick figures entering the tunnel on the opposite side. One stick figure joyously proclaims, "See! We haven't even started yet and I can already see the light!"
