Earlier this week I was beginning a new project for my company. While thinking and trying to wrap my brain around the project, I decided that I needed to seek outside assistance…a counselor. So, I got on my computer and began emailing various companies and government resources that were available on-line.
I then moved on to my next task of the day. Shortly after, I spoke to my boyfriend and he asked what I was doing. I explained that I was undertaking this new project and had just reached out to the various entities, to seek their counsel. He explained that it was not necessary. While talking about the process with him, he said everything you just said to me about how you think you need to go about doing the project, is what you need to be doing.
I had completely forgotten that his former position required him to do the work that I was seeking outside counsel. He was very good and had generated lots of money for his business doing this work. It then made me think about life. There have been so many times where I’ve reached out to people and sought guidance from mentors, business professionals, co-workers, etc. when I could have asked my mom, friends, classmates, etc.
So, I suggest that we all take a step back and start at home. Rather than going outside, whether in relationships, business, family, spirituality, see what can be accomplished by starting at the core (home) and then reach further.
