Dance in the rain

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
Vivian Greene

That made me stop and think.

What does it mean to you?

For all the plans we make, ultimately, we dance with whatever emerges in the present.

Have you noticed that?

Even if it is just choosing a different route when driving to avoid bad traffic.

Next time you are making plans, no matter how small, expect the unexpected, the emergent.

Therefore, focus your plans on direction rather than full control.

Things happen, and we respond, we ‘dance’.

We evolved that way, and that’s OK 🙂

My best wishes, Paul
