No matter the definition we give our stage of work, our outlook provides a window on the world. We may hold a positive, negative or indeed neutral view of our environment and position within it.
The window of the world could on occasions be in need of a clean, especially if soiled by prejudices, fears or doubts. On the other hand, should it be the window on the world looks out on a fascinating scene, we might need to look away if we are too distracted.
A window on the world is, in a sense, a reflection of all we have experienced and accomplished to date. It is easy for each of us to forget the work we have undertaken to reach where we are. Ideally we are exactly where we want to be, or at least further along the path than say this time last year.
However, without judging ourselves against others or seeking excuses for any perceived lack of progress in our development to date, we get to start anew today from here. A window on the world is before us and what we do now will impact on what we see later, as well as where we see it from.
