Here’s a mindset for you:
Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further. Thomas Carlyle
Go. It has an action context. You’re not standing still. You’re not drifting. Go says move with purpose. Intend to head in a direction.
Far as you can see. All we can do is all we can do. Looking ahead, what challenges are there? What opportunities exist? We are governed today by what we know to be true and can see in our realm. Keep your head up and look down the way. Go where that leads you.
Get there, see further. As we go with purpose to what we see, we learn as we move. Every day down the road provides a different vantage point. We can know get better because we know more.
There will always be more to see. There will always be another place to consider. Keep your head up. Keep moving. It’s said it’s about the process, not the result.
