The bigger picture
For most things, focusing on the bigger picture is the smartest strategy. The majority of us are constantly reacting to small everyday stuff with no goal in mind to keep us on track. How’s that saying go? If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything. I think in many cases, it’s true.
Imagine if Elon Musk decided not to invest so heavily into clean, innovative tech simply because he’s tired of dealing with the politics. Or because people don’t understand his goals. The world is dependent on thinkers like him, who goes against the grain for a bigger vision he believes in. Just like he needs to stay focused on a bigger picture, you do too.
Because we all lose if we fill our mind to the brim with common, everyday stuff.
