In Old World Germany, the last decoration placed on the Christmas tree was always a pickle…carefully hidden deep in the boughs. Legend has it that the observant child who found it on Christmas Day was blessed with a year of good fortune…and a special gift.
Where are your dreams, goals and visions hidden?
Our conversation creating a vision in a microwave world left me in a bit of a quandary. As we listed the instant examples that our culture has become accustomed to, from microwave cooking, to fast passes at Disneyland so we don’t have to wait in lines, to being annoyed if the speed of our internet connection is not blazing fast, and we used to think dial-up was fast.
Oh my gosh!! I couldn’t agree with you more when you said
“instant everything is a mindset for failure.”
Do you think that’s why we don’t have clarity of outcome? I know I need and enjoy my downtime to think, reflect, pray, write, review, ponder and call you to discuss the ripple effects. Some of my best and deepest conversations were during the planning stages. Even our conversations today are instant, text messaging, email, and twitter. Are we loosing the ability to communicate? How do you share you visions and dreams in a world of 140 characters or less?
