#3 Seen in the distance, problems sometimes appear larger and more ominous. But as we move closer, the solution appears.
I’m tempted to quote the “One Step at a Time” adage, but this is different. The lesson in this one for me was that my perception of danger (or risk) lessened as I got closer to it, as I got more information.
When difficult sections loomed ahead, I’d think, “This is where I needed Dave’s help on the way up; whatever will I do now?” But each time, as I got closer to that point, I could envision how I would go, where I would put my feet, what I could grab onto.
As I kept moving forward, toward what had at first appeared insurmountable, the path (the way, the answer, the solution) appeared.
Frankly, I think this is one of life’s more important lessons.
How about you?
