All too frequently we only see the trees. We focus (and rightly so) on that "to do" list, and unfortunately at times in doing so, we tend to see the immediate tasks at hand, and forget about the "big picture" - or the forest.
Looking through the trees and remembering the forest out there reminds us of our long-term goals; our dreams. An easy way to keep those dreams alive and us working toward them, can be as simple as including that on your "to do" list. Start each list with simply, "Remember the forest."
