about traffic on the road of progress.
Better eat now, because I might not have time later.
Better write this now, because I might get caught up and lose track of this idea. Better do this work for this client . . . schedule that meeting . . . write that list . . . keep things moving forward down the road . . . or else.
It’s a way of always living in the future.
Lots of days work like this because, well, who knows what tomorrow will bring?
We keep moving forward because it’s better . . . better than standing still.
Better than standing still? I’m not so sure about that.
Standing brings us back to the present. Suddenly the road of progress is only one degree of 360 we might consider. A quick look around and options seem to be everywhere.
Reflection, introspection. How else do we find out what we know?
It’s good leave the traffic and see where we are.
Even better than standing still . . . is a good wander off the road.
Curiosity, experimentation. recreation. They’re three keys to finding new ideas.
Have you looked at that word lately?
. . . think about it.
Consider re-creating a few minutes this morning.
Give yourself a chance at discovering a new idea or two.
New ideas get run over by traffic.
They thrive, sparkle, and shine by the side of the road.
What were you doing when you got your last fabulous idea?
