“Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road.” – C.S. Lewis
Are you on the right road?
Lewis underscores… Going faster. Staying longer. Flailing your arms won’t help you progress if you’re on the wrong road.
It takes humility to take account of the roads we choose and consider whether we’ve taken a bad turn.
It takes wisdom to compare notes with others and determine if they might could send you in a better direction.
Most people don’t like the thought of backtracking. I know I don’t. But, it’s the truth to consider that backing up just might be the way forward. Tags: Learning from past choices; positive; direction; moving forward
