17. Thought

Just do it? I don’t think so.

 

There’s a tendency these days to be shortsighted about what is takes to move ahead. We Americans pride ourselves on practicality and common sense. We seem to grow anxious and frustrated if solutions aren’t apparent and easily within our reach. You’ve said it before, haven’t you? “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I seem get anything accomplished? No one but me seems to have problems in making progress.”

 

Maybe you’re one of the fortunate few who find little difficulty in getting on with life. But if you’re anything like me, most decisions and choices require thoughtful, time-consuming, consideration. I don’t know, maybe I’m just a bit too slow for today’s general pace of life today. I mean, many people around me do seem to gather their thoughts quicker and with greater certainty. Most even talk faster than I do. So, is there an answer to the frustration? I’ll just need a little time to think about it.

 

Day 17 Guide

 

Don’t let the rushing winds carry you in directions that aren’t of your own intention. Move into the “right lane” and let the faster traffic move along. It’s safer and more enjoyable to travel at speeds that you can handle.
