You can’t see the full picture when you are in the frame. You have to step out of the frame in order to get a panoramic view and gain better clarity and perspective.
Paulo Coelho said it best, “You drown, not by falling in a river, but by staying in it”.
With the current challenges facing you, your practice and the rest of the world, don’t allow yourself to get drowned in it. Don’t just zoom in and focus on the challenges, you can zoom out as well and look for opportunities in the midst of it all and allow new energy and new ideas flow through you.
Sometimes the answers you are looking for, come outside of where you are focused on. When you find the answers, do not hesitate for a moment to dive into them and make them work for you. When you find the answers you are looking for, that is not the time to doubt yourself or fear failure. Go all in and give it your best and you will be surprised at your results.
Always remember, to see the big picture, you have to first get out of the frame. The fact that you’re in the legal profession, doesn’t mean that’s where all the answers are. Get out of that frame of what you are used to and see all the other possibilities of how things can be done better to meet the challenges that COVID-19 has brought.
