In the hustle and bustle of everyday activity, we easily lose track of where we are and which direction we are headed.
It’s a consequence of life. Predictable things are easy to keep on track. Precisely because we can predict them. Life though offers up curve balls – constantly. The curveballs are challenging, but we can deal with them most of the time.
It’s the adjustment in strategy that results from changes to the predictable that becomes hard to track. The customer crisis here, or late-night delivery there that adds up.
Every so often, it pays to stop what you are doing and take a bearing. Figure out where you are at, and how to adjust your heading to reach where you are intending to go.
Sometimes, slow is fast.
