Or must we hack away overgrown jungle to get to it, climb a mountain to find it?
Pathways to new futures aren’t readily apparent.
We tend to only see our present.
Not apparent when we go on a trip.
Not apparent when we start a new project or meet a new client.
Interesting diversions, tasks and excursions from familiar paths.
Maybe that’s all we can handle.
But what if there is so much more?
If our best path in life is one we’ve neither explored nor gone looking for?
Unlikely they come looking for us.
We need go looking – out there, to find them.
Or we can wait for it to find us.
Don’t hold your breath …
