What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let’s do something different today. I want to put a challenge before you.
You write the post next.
C’mon; why not? I know you have it in you …
Here’s the plan: Unpack this quote by considering the following —
What is it that lies behind us?
What lies before us?
What lies within us?
What’s your main take away, in your own words?
Hit this link. The link will take you to SurveyMonkey. Those four questions, only; promise. Answer only one or two. Or all four. Whatever you want.
Oh, and, totally anonymous …
Hit the link! Tell me what you think!
Then come back Thursday, to read the post you wrote! Of course, I’ll share my thoughts on Emerson’s eighteen words as well … What are the odds that you’re pondering what I’m pondering?
So hit the link! Tell me what you think.
This really is a tiny matter.
Get it behind you!
Hit the link!
Oh John . . . you took me back to my childhood with this post. There was a point in my life when I was into those “create your own adventure” books. Remember those books? You would read a few pages and then the author would say something like, “if you want the character to do X then turn to page Y” or “if you want the character to do A then turn to page B”. This post should be great fun for your readers. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.
