where are my sunglasses?

There's no doubt in my mind that the more you DO the more you are able to SEE.  I suppose this is the essence of wisdom.  With experience one gains perspective and sees connections between seemingly unrelated elements.   Sounds like a good thing, huh?

Well, yes and no. 

I don't claim to be wise only that I am more wise than I once was.   Over time, slowly, and not through paradigm shifts but through organic thinking I've come to  see things I couldn't imagine seening before.  I see connections.  I see countless clear and obvious opportunities.  So many, in fact, that it's starting to become limiting.   

There's a flood of powerful ideas begging to be acted upon and demanding my all to limited resources.  It's actually disorienting like coming out of a movie theatre into the mid day summer sunshine.  BAM!  "Where the hell are my sunglasses!"

This is where real wisdom comes into play… the ability to be aware of everything but choose to devote attention and resources only to the highest payoff opportunities.  Leverage your greater awareness…use it, nurture it,  but don't become overly enchanted by it.   Make a decision which direction you want to go, put on your sunglasses and get to work.
