Figuring It Out

If we don’t allow people to examine their decisions

Explore the whys and hows of what they did

How do we expect them to figure out

Better decision making

Different whys and hows

And the joy of better outcomes.

Not all reasons are excuses.

Some are part of the learning process of life.

Map. Figuring it out. Journey.

We don’t all figure things out the same way.

I can read a map but I still get lost.

    I loved the book, If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going You’ll End Up Somewhere Else. To me, it’s okay to end up somewhere ….and enjoy the journey.

  9. Many of us take the long way round to get some place in body and in thought but that is ok getting there in the end is the most important thing not how we get there

    I certainly want to be someone who encourages reflection and introspection. I have never experienced my learning as one solid straight line! πŸ™‚

  13. Brilliant words. Our learning process involves making mistakes. You read road maps and get lost. I read recipes and cook awful dishes. All part of the process..

    Ohh yes… I can’t still figure out many of my ways …
