Jonathan Gottschal suggests that “story is the grease and glue of society” (in The Storytelling Animal). He says stories unite people – pulling them together to connect through common values and ideas. What’s your part in that?
There are many things in life that present challenges. At times things can seem too challenging, others not challenging enough. Can we live without challenge? Perhaps the search is for the challenge that is “just right”? Not too challenging. Not too easy.
What about you? Do you like a challenge?
Sometimes you need new ideas about how to approach something. Often under pressure, those ideas are not forthcoming. Is it because of the sense of urgency? Is because there is too much focused thinking about it? Or, do we focus on the wrong thing? It could be all three – but there may be a way to get past these obstacles.
