Send me. Let me travel the roadbeds
of other’s journeys.
There is no need for me to rewrite maps.
Others have traveled here and know the way.
There is less to explore than we imagine.
About this poem
It’s not often my poetry merges with my day job, but today it does. When I talk to my coaching clients, I remind them that for most things we want in life, the solutions are simpler than we think. Others have traveled their road. The maps are there for us. We make it complicated. We insist on re-inventing the wheel, making it harder than it needs to be.
Whatever “it’ is.
It was a hard lesson for me to learn. But even Mr Dense (that would be me.) finally got it. And life became far easier, far more joyful, far more successful in the ways that matter.
Be well. Travel wisely,
