Two hands holding up two pieces of jigsaw puzzle pieces

The bigger picture

January 12, 2021

Once you see the bigger picture, everything will fall into place.

This was the best piece of advice I ever received and it was during my second year in 🏫 college.  At the time it didn’t make any sense given that every single person in my Sport History class failed our first midterm exam but I’ll never forget those words that my professor kept repeating over and over again. 🖼️  “Once you see the bigger picture, everything will fall into place”.  

You see, our exams were made up of fill in the blanks from about 300 pages of notes that were given to us, no text book, just sheets upon sheets of notes.  👨🏼‍🏫 Norm our prof, would make us fill in the words of random sentences from which he pulled from these notes.  Then one day it hit me as I was in the shower 🚿 (usually where I gain clarity), if I seek to understand the overall concept then of course all the little details would then make sense.  For example, when we’re holding individual pieces of a jigsaw puzzle 🧩, none of the pieces would make any sense but if we could see what the finished picture SHOULD look like then these individual pieces would then fall into place.

As we enter into this new year, many of us are looking to renew our 🎇 resolutions and plan for next twelve months but what if we looked ever further out say five years from now.  Can you see what your life or your business looks like then?  If yes, what are the steps that you need to take in the next three years, the next 12 months, 90 days, 60 days and 30 days to get there? 🗓️  It’s just as if we decided to take a road trip.  We pick a destination then we can map out the roads we will take to get to that destination opposed to just seeing where the road will take us.  Don’t get me wrong, for some that works too but for most we can’t get to a destination 🛣️ without planning on where it is we actually want to go.
