Life is not linear

It’s Monday, and that means I have gently changed the dates my to-do list from last week to this 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 prepare for the next step forward.

Sometimes more than one step and sometimes more than once. But remember, you 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.

What do you think?

See you tomorrow!
