Have you thought about the bigger picture? || Monday Moments #8

Have you ever had one of those weeks when it seems like everything is going wrong?
Yup? Me too. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I tend to often spend time focusing on the smaller details and how they can be improved. This is great but often your biggest strengths can also be your biggest weaknesses!

I guess the main problem when we focus too much on the smaller details is that we can lose perspective. We can fail to see that each set back, wrong decision, or obstacle has its own place in our journey through life. 

Xun Zi (a Chinese philosopher) says, "In order to properly understand the big picture, everyone should fear becoming mentally clouded and obsessed with one small section of truth".

These small details all connect to each other in one way or another, so as hard as it may be, try not too dwell on the small stuff, but take a step back and look at the bigger picture. 

P.S what would you like next weeks Monday Moments to be about?


  1. Totally agree with this, it's all too easy to get caught up in little details and forget how everything comes together! :)

    1. I guess you have to make an active choice to look at the bigger picture.
