When I’m Lost

Standard

As a young man, I had a poor sense of direction and I was to proud to stop and ask for assistance. I quickly discovered three questions that would help me when I got lost.

1. Where did I come from?
2. Where am I now?
3. Where do I want to go?

1. Where did I come from?
When i was lost I would retrace my steps and regain my bearings. I would start from a place that I knew and move forward.

*No one wants to go backwards, but sometimes it’s the only way to move forward.

2. Where am I now?
Often I’d gotten lost because I was not where I thought I was. The ‘you are here’ arrows on mall maps were written for people like me.

*Taking an inventory of where you are is an absolute necessity to arrive at the right destination.

3.Where do I want to go?
Driving in circles brings you back to where you started with no real progress being made.

*Settling on a destination because you are to exhausted to continue will lead to frustration.

There have been occasions when these three questions were not enough. I still had to stop and ask for help.

*I have discovered there is a benefit to asking someone with experience for assistance.

These three questions can apply to the pursuit of  your career, your goals, and  your passions.

1. Where did you come from?
2. Where are you now?
3. Where do you want to go?
