Last weekend we were on Sanibel Island celebrating a wedding of our son’s friend. It was a fantastic reunion weekend with old friends. One night we were in a restaurant right around sunset and the discussion turned to where we should look to watch it. Everyone was pointing in a different direction, as we were all turned around! We weren’t sure where to look. Thank goodness for the compass on my cell phone! It helped us find our bearings and know where to look to find the sunset we wanted to experience.
You are a genius! Yes……YOU! It might not feel like it right this moment, but you are a genius at something.
The question is, are you using your genius?
It can seem like an endless journey. Sometimes you feel the search isn’t worth it and you might as well accept that this is all there is. But there is this spark that propels you forward, that whispers to you that there is more to the story than just what we see on the surface.
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” African Proverb
Is your goal to go fast or go far? Personally, I want to go far. I’d like to go as fast as possible, but I’ve learned that fast can lead to false progress, leading me to places that I didn’t intend – or really want – to go.
