The Power of the Big

I was working on a personal project last week and I was stressed and frustrated by the pace of my progress. As a quick distraction, I call my friend, Dennis, just to talk. Dennis is an impeccable feedback mechanism for me: he doesn’t mince words. His answer to my overwhelm was paradoxical and brilliant. “Anita,” he told me. “You are mired in the weeds and are ignoring the big picture. That’s where you will find your purpose, creativity, and energy to happily persevere.”

He is right. With it’s important to find momentum in the small, the power of the big is to elevate our perspective, capacity, and heart.

Thanks, Den.

Have a great day,
Anita
