A Shift in Focus

The Real Need to Stop.

During the course of any journey, one needs to stop every once in a while, to look around, check that you’re actually moving in the right direction. To check the location of certain key features against those on a map, to ensure that you actually are where you think you are on the map, and then get back to moving towards your destination. This is how life must be treated too, I have found.

Stopping to look around and Find Direction

For me, this happened last December (2014). It was a time to look at the industry and understand where it was going, and look at me and my skills and understand where I was going, and where I wanted to go. The picture in my head didn’t match where the map told me I was, and where I was going. This was disconcerting. So I decided to look around and find my direction once again before restarting my journey.

These days I’m looking around more often to make sure I’m on the right course. As a result, my course corrections aren’t as big as they needed to be in the past. That is comforting.

You’ll see this course correction in the content of this blog, and my other online properties as I start adding more content. I will also be making larger, and more apparent changes.

How Often do You Make Course Corrections

How often do you look at your life and make changes that you need to? If you don’t look at the big picture often, do you find that you need to make bigger corrections? What would happen if you made more frequent evaluations and corrections on your life’s journey?
