Any one of the women here on 8 Women Dream can attest that getting to close to your dreams is an occupational hazard.
They are OURS, after all. Who else is going to pay attention to the finer details?
I had an incredible opportunity this week to work with Remy (yes OUR Remy) in her other life as Business Consultant extraordinaire. One of the items we discussed was frustration and where it’s coming from. The huge elephant in the room is that we have no direct and easy method of looking at the big picture.
We have tools to track the minutia, to-dos, tasks, etc. Not much to allow the proverbial 20,000 foot view. Yeah, that is on the top of the list to implement now.
Where in your life to you miss the forest for the trees?
If you have teenagers, you get a daily reminder of someone focusing on the details and completely ignoring the big picture. Everything is in the moment.
Their constant argument of “Is this all about me? If not, how can I argue against it?”.
As I stare at the beautiful daffodils that Rayne (our newest dreamer) was kind enough to bring over Monday, they remind me it’s almost spring.
Renewal time again.
Whether we accept or not, renewal is with us daily. It’s a constant, like time or space. . . or missing the big picture.
On your road to success, take a step off the path and check the landscape. You may be pleasantly surprised at the answers it gives.
