Carry a compass and let it point the way.
Calm App Reflection
Which navigation app do you prefer — Google Maps or Waze?
When was the last time you used an actual (paper) map? When, if ever, have you used a compass? I’d have to go back over 50 years to my Boy Scout days!
Getting from here to there by car has never been easier. Since Google owns both apps and has a virtual monopoly on the navigation market, they probably do not care much about which platform you choose. They win either way.
What navigation resources do you use to point you to the true north of your life? What forces and magnetic powers do you summon to show you the way? How do you find your way around the detours, roadblocks, potholes, and winding roads to get where you want to go?
What are the compasses you use to guide your life? How do they work to help you find your way in both the bright and dark aspects of your days?
You helped draw out of me and articulate my life’s vision and mission about 15 years ago. I have it hanging on my office wall. It still serves to remind me of my core values, and guides me in making any major decisions.
Thank you for taking me through that process.
