I had planned to write a ‘thoughtful’ piece on perfection today. But then I came across this photo, and it spoke to me so loudly that I had to share it.
I had a really hectic week. Firefighting, short-staffed, meetings galore, everyone wanting a piece of me – you get the picture. I was frazzled, but I still wanted to be ‘productive’. But I was struggling. Usually when I prepare a post, things flow, because the thoughts are authentic and I love finding the perfect photo to capture the essence. But nothing was coming easily, even though I thought I already knew what I was writing about. But then I saw this photo and it screamed,”hey, remember this? Time to chill”. Espresso, sunglasses and a slow-moving morning. That’s exactly what I need right now, if only in my mind.
So forget perfection or best-laid plans. The only piece of wisdom I can offer right now is that there comes a point where we can’t force productivity. And a break, mental or real, could be just the thing to get you back in the flow.
