Life is not linear.

Life is not linear.

We’re getting toward the end of the week and I’m gently changing the dates on my to do list from this week to next week.

Results? I’ve had a few but then again too few to mention.

So here’s a little note to remind us all that life is not linear. Sometimes you just have to take a step back or sideways to be best prepared for the next step forward. Sometimes more than one step and sometimes more than once. But remember, can’t fire a slingshot without pulling back that ol’ rubber band first.

This goes beyond a weekly to do list. Think about modern career trajectories: more and more people are creating their own job paths which may include moving across and not up… and maybe even moving down into a new career or industry.

Like a slingshot, sometimes you have to pull back before you can propel forward

And that’s okay, even if the most direct, as-the-crow-flies route isn’t always the fastest or the most enjoyable path.
