Forests and Trees

Of course you’ve heard the analogy of the forest and the trees. We all have. We know that if the only thing we pay attention to is the tree in our face, we can never truly know or understand the forest. It’s wisdom that is so common as to be meaningless. What you likely don’t know is how you can systematically pay attention to both the forest and the tree. It’s easy enough in hindsight for someone to show you where you lost perspective and forgot about the big picture, but how do you do that IN THE MOMENT?
