In Emma Burcart’s post ‘Sometimes There’s A Crack in the Plan‘, she tells the tale of a road trip that doesn’t go according to plan.
It’s so easy to get angry and upset when things don’t go according to our vision or expectations. After all we control the our world and everything it touches – NOT!
Yes, there are deadlines, milestones and necessary things to be done. Tangents, shiny things and moments of pure inspiration are the grease that keeps our practical gears going. Too much lubricant and our gears spin, no traction. Not enough and they get stuck. Finding that balance is hard work.
I get stuck or distracted all the time, but there are times when the Universe aligns and I’m in my zone. I just have to remember to keep my goals insight and be flexible enough to seize the opportunities that come my way.
