“When the winds of life change, adjust your sails and modify your course.”
Even the best of plans require adjustments along the way. Unanticipated events, new and better information, unexpected obstacles, and other outside forces often require we make changes. Redefining our goal demands flexibility and revision of the initial plan. Sometimes we become so determined and single-minded, we lose sight of the “why” we are doing something. The ability to adapt is an evolutionary requirement if we are to survive and thrive. We cannot change the wind or other forces of nature, but as a seasoned sailor will tell you, adjusting the sail to the prevailing conditions will allow us to get to where we are going. Are you adjusting your sails when it’s needed?
