Being laser focused on a goal gives us what many refer to as tunnel vision. A person is locked onto a goal and is committed to doing whatever it takes to achieve this goal. There is anticipation of finishing or getting through the tunnel to finally arrive at the light at the end. But what happens when we come to the end of the tunnel?
Really it’s just a change of words. Instead of arriving at the end of the tunnel, let’s look at it as just arriving at the beginning of the sunlit path on the other side. I mean that’s what gets people through anyway right…”I can see the light at the end of the tunnel”. This path might continue forward to the next tunnel, or begin ascending towards the mountains. It may cross a river, or it may run through a busy city. It may be darkened by grey clouds and rain, or it may come to a screeching halt at the edge of a cliff where some new and creative decisions have to be made.
Ok but enough with all the fluffy descriptions for a second. It really just means it’s never the end. It’s always the beginning of something new!
