When the road is foggy you need to slow down; same applies to learning.
That's it. That is all I have for you today. :0)

As easy concept to grasp but often never conceived (by me). Reading this was needed right now.

I literally have never tried learning as much as I have been in recent weeks and it not just through affiliate marketing stuff. I'm really in the grind now!

Once you start that road it never ends!
It's a wonderful path to be on!

If I have it in me to stay the course. But yeah I enjoy the feeling of it. I'd said its comparable to the post-hard work out.

The lure to run before we can we walk is such a temptation. It takes a little time and patience and before we know it, it all becomes second nature.

Sometimes these short posts pack a punch and a picture speaks a thousand words!

Hi Carl, my friend, I hope you are well there.

I am well. Thank you Wayne! I thought it would be a good change from my usual mile long posts.

I think most of us like your mile long posts Carl. People like to feel uplifted and you mostly have something inspiring that people enjoy reading. You have opinions, knowledge and direction.

This post is not mile long but it still packs the punch and you get a positive point across in the process.

Things are different further down the road, that's been my experience.

I have a friend she is constantly saying, Wayne "keep walking", she has actually worn the phrase out on me now (phrase overload)!

Another friend said to me "When the road is foggy you need to slow down" and then I just merge things together:

"slow down, keep walking and keep learning at a manageable pace." Personally, I add make it flaming fun as well!

I don't know Carl, I keep getting all this free advice, happy days for me!

Wayne

P.S. My response, as usual is longer than your post! I hope it is kind of follow-able? A tad disjointed.

Good advice, Carl. I had to learn that lesson when I first started here. We all have different learning rates and we should never try to go faster. It just creates burn out and confusion.

Taking a deep breath and moving forward,

The commercial jet pilot picks up the PA microphone and addresses the passengers. "Folks, I'm sorry we are totally lost. We have no earthly idea where we are. On the other hand, we are making excellent time."

Sometimes the best thing we can do is to slow down.

Just as long as you can see far enough to take the next step - that is all it takes.

Yes I agree. Sometimes you can only see as far as the next step. :-) And my advice then ---- Take it!

Exactly. Slow down but don't stop. Retrace your steps even. But don't give up. :-) Exactly.

If you don't know what's in front of you or don't know your exact goals, you have to assess the situation before going forward. Life is not a race, life is a marathon and sometimes you need to slow down to gain strength and move forward again.

HI Carl, that is a very powerful message. Clearly described by the picture. Truth, when unclear, slow down and either wait or ask. Thanks,

Hmmm, Carl. You have left it up to our own imagination to decipher and make the application. :)

Here goes my interpretation and its application for me!

"When the road is foggy you need to slow down;" - this is an obvious fact from which the latter, "same applies to learning" is intended to be the object lesson. So I leave that alone and focus on the latter

Therefore, "same applies to learning" means...when I don't understand what's going on, I take a break to assess, analyze, process, absorb and maybe make a decision before moving forward.

That's my take as you have left it up to me.:))

This could be a powerful lesson in communication and how what we say or don't say, can produce different outcomes depending on the recipient.

Yes, sometimes you can´t help the road conditions, but just have to drive safely, and accept that it will slow you down. I had a journey in early December where I started off in ice and a snow storm, and to travel one mile took me an hour, and when I finally got to my destination the weather there was mild and sunny, although it was a couple of hundred miles away. The people I visited found it hard to believe the journey had taken so long, or that the weather was so severe where I started off! Alan
