Sometimes pictures make you think. Especially at the end of the year, where it’s traditionally the time to reflect on the past year and think about what choices you made, which choice you did not take and what you learned.
The motive present is always the standing at the crossroads. I wanted to collect some thoughts on what you can do at such a point – using this photograph.
- You choose a path.
- You do not choose and wait for something (This might be the worst solution in most cases but can be a good choice on rare occasions).
- Maximize your options. If you look in the picture below, you do not see the path to the right because the camera covers a lot but does not give you the whole picture. Think of “The map is not the territory!“.
- Invent a path.
Whatever you do: Think first!
If you want you can use the picture below as a wallpaper (This one is 1920×1080 and creative commons). It might help as a visual anchor to think on what you want to achieve 2012. Use your brain and don’t let it be the other way around.
