A friend of mine spoke these valuable words the other morning while on a run. A lot of the time we don’t really see the answer to the problem we are facing. It’s not because we aren’t thinking about it, but sometimes we just can’t see everything.
It’s like being on a race through the trails and taking a moment to peel off up a side hill in order to see the full landscape of where we are heading. It feels counterintuitive to stop like this but in the end it provides a clarity that can’t be matched by simply moving along.
So we need to stop. Pause. Take enough time and space to go up a little higher in order to get a better idea – better perspective – on where we are and where we are going.
