Do you know the phrase – “you can’t see the wood for the trees”? I am sure you do!
It is a good turn of phrase and it helps to check myself in not getting lost in the detail. Sometimes I find myself trapped in the hustle and bustle of the everyday. I am constantly checking my mobile phone, responding to e-mails and continually WhatsApping. My wife, Julie, is brilliant at reminding me to look up and notice the bigger picture – what is really important.
I wonder if you are like me? Do you miss things, opportunities and connections by simply walking by and not noticing?
