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.
