More often than not, life’s paths are not a straight shot to your final destination. No, they are just the opposite, winding, foggy, and filled with uncertainty.
What’s around the next bend? What’s that fuzzy image ahead?
You don’t know.
How do you navigate these paths? Do you run with eyes closed hoping to make it where you want to go? No!
Without a clear picture, what’s your next move? Do you stop and give up? Absolutely not!
In this ACRONYM story, we’ll consider the second of the three Y’s that lead to CLARITY. Look Beyond Yesterday to Achieve Clarity
Yesterday: Look Beyond it to Achieve Clarity
The old farmer shared his secret to planting row after row of corn that was consistently straight. Fix your eye on a point in the distance, a tree or some other kind of landmark, and drive your tractor towards it.
What do you think would happen to the rows if he turned his head to look behind as he drove? They would be anything but straight.
The same can be said for the person who has a goal but is constantly looking back to yesterday instead of focusing on the here and now.
Will clarity toward your goal be realized? Probably not.
Does this mean you should never look back to yesterday? No.
Daily Doable: Fix your eye on your goal and move toward it. Look back to yesterday for motivation and understanding. You’ve got this!
