I talk every now and then about the “Big Picture”. You need one, I need one. That’s my belief, anyway. A bigger picture of your life, that is, not just a view of what’s staring you in the face, day by day. Maybe like an end game? OR … a series of developing pictures as you trundle through life. Like marker points. Yes, that’s a better descrip.
I have developed my Big Picture over a period of years. It took time to take shape however things eventually fell into place and then WOW, I had one. I knew my aimpoint, I could see myself “sitting pretty”. Well at least until recently.
My “picture” started to get a bit grainy. It was like there was interference or static trying to intrude upon my clarity … what the? We’ll get back to that in a little while.
Your Big Picture gives you something to aim at in life. It can be a crystallisation of all your goals and aspirations, thoughts and dreams.
And it can be short term, mid term or longer term. Because …..
Your Big Picture can also be a moving target. Something flexible. Something that you work on through various stages of your life. As I mentioned earlier … “a series of developing pictures”. As your life evolves, your aimpoint varies and your picture changes. So you can have a series of ‘Big Pictures’ if you wish. And I believe, it is important to have that picture, otherwise you are aimless.
But what happens when interference intrudes on your ideal view of your Life, on what you are pouring all of your energy into achieving?
Your picture becomes grainy?
All you see is static?
All you hear is white noise?
So, what do you need to do about this? …..
The usual suspects:
You are all cluttered up – then clear it.
You have lack of focus – then re focus.
You don’t have enough time – then make time.
You have too many “helpers” – then get rid of the excess baggage, minimise distractions
Plus some new ones:
Stop chasing moonbeams. Start chasing facts & initiate proper action.
Get Real, otherwise you may as well turn off your picture . “Wishing” won’t cut it.
Blunt? … Yes it is.
If you want the ‘picture’ then you’ve got to take all the necessary actions to get the right shot.
OR … there is another scenario:
Your picture may simply need updating. You see, in my case a part of my picture is no longer integral to my bigger view of my life. I was keeping that in play & it had an effect on the overall scheme of things. Just a seemingly small part can have a much bigger impact.
I knew that something wasn’t quite right. There was something that was reducing my satisfaction factor. I tried to downplay this dissatisfaction for a while, however was only kidding myself in the end.
The main lesson here is that if your aim is to have a clear direction, a clear view of what you want your life to be like [a Big Picture]… then you must (in my opinion) be clear what it is that will truly give this to you. What are the ingredients, the factors, the desires. Now that’s all fine however
You also need to be prepared that what you want/think what you want, may well change as time goes on. So try to avoid aiming at or continuing to focus on, an “ideal” that has passed it’s use by date. If there is something that is no longer key to your life’s harmony, then remove it.
Sometimes the goal posts move by either your own actions or by external forces. Therefore you need to make the necessary adjustments to ensure clear sailing.
Are you tuned in to your life and where it is heading? OR is some fine tuning required? Love to hear your thoughts.
