You’ve heard the old aphorism about all work and no play making Jack a dull boy? We’re not quite in that territory this week, but not so far away.
The thing about work is: consistency and steady effort are definitely good things. Honing a craft, practising, allowing a thing to bloom in its own time are important skills. But sometimes, in order for a nascent bud to burst into flower, we need to make a leap of faith. We must accept that while outcomes are not always guaranteed, much less clear to us in advance, in order to get to the end result we occasionally have to just… close our eyes and dive in. To dream, to fantasise a little, and take the chance that those flights of fantasy may in reality end up sailing us closer to the thing we have in mind.
So – this week, don’t give up on the steady progress you’ve made, but think about how it might be enhanced by a little unscheduled play. Listen to the daydreams that are whispering “what if…?” You might find they have something to say.
Have a good week and stay safe x
