The words of the old Dave Matthews song come to life as I sit in one of my best office chairs. How do we know our direction? How do we know what is important?
A lot of blogs like to tell people what to do. Five ways to do this; seven ways to do that. Apparently, people like to have succinct list of the potential answers to their challenge. I understand that blogs can become very popular with this approach.
However, I can weary of reading someone’s view of what I need to do. I wonder if others feel the same way, as I work to come up with yet another instructive blog. Sometimes it just makes more sense to meet face to face and have a real conversation, talking about the specific situation. Other times, it is more productive to take some quiet time and determine the best path forward.
The choices are ours to make.
