Moving forward would be so much easier if the path was straight and smooth. However, we know that in reality, forward movement in many aspects of life and business will mean that there are some dips and curves broken up with a few mountaintop experiences.
Everyone wants the highs and dreads the lows. We experience the confusion of the twist and the frustration of the turns. We want a linear experience, where we can see the end from where we are currently standing.
We want a clear vision without obstacles to our view. All the danger needs to be clearly outlined and the distance from where we are to where we want to be is measurable so we can plan accordingly. That however is rarely what we experience.
So for my fellow travelers who are moving forward bravely, but with some degree of uncertainty on this road with all its highs, lows, dips, and peaks, I want to encourage you to just enjoy the journey.
If you can find some fellow sojourners to walk with you, it will be even more enjoyable because progress is not linear.
