This is an amazing photo by my daughter, Michelle Blumenthal.
This deer just tried to jump a fence, but got impaled right through its neck–yikes!
Truly a life lesson–it is good to reach high for what you want, but not to overreach.
It really is a fine balance and takes self-awareness, discipline, and some good fortune.
We have to know how much and how quickly to push ourselves to grow past prior limitations, but also recognize just how far we can make it on the next leap.
Maybe that’s one reason an incremental or phased approach is good.
It enables us to move ever forward, carefully planning and navigating our next steps, while hopefully not getting unnecessarily hung up by the life obstacles we must overcome.
Good luck everyone!
