Without using points of references to guide our progress we can occasionally be lucky and actually arrive at our desired destination. The probability of a successful outcome to our efforts is, however, enhanced when we do go about using them.
What we take as our points of references will be related to the nature of the endeavour as well as to how we feel about it. We might wish to benchmark our progress using people we know who have gone before us. Alternatively, our progress could be measured against commonly known and widely available criteria.
Then again, we may choose specific items closely associated with the matter in question to assist us on our journey. Using points of references to guide our progress, in any case, keeps us fully focused on what we are attempting to do and where we are aiming to reach.
Whatever our way of using points of references to guide our progress, and accepting there will be times the path is tough going, we should remind ourselves often why we are aiming to move from where we are to a different location, be it physical or figurative. Clarity concerning this is a key factor to reaching our goal.
For now, thanks for being here and reading this ‘Using points of references to guide our progress’ post.
