Sabbatical Update: Ready, Fire! Aim,

Most of you would laugh at a gun crew that used the above drill for honing its artillery skills.

How can you fire when you haven’t found you target?= It goes against the logical order of events.

And yet, in an odd sort of way; we always have to fire before we aim. So often what the target should be isn’t known, or what is known isn’t the best answer. So we take some shots in the dark and see what is revealed. Often initial tests show that a better goal than originally conceived arises.

So how much have people learned from their mistakes, as opposed to their successes. We need to be willing to have action, take steps, even when we aren’t sure of the course. It is good to take aim, but first it is important to have motion, then motion in the right direction.
