The kind of work that makes a difference is often done in the edge of creativity. For this kind of work, there are no “immutable truths” because in fact the answers are still being found.
From history we learn to look back and see the big picture. We can clearly visualize how someone or some group managed to overcome that obstacle. When we look to the future, though, it seems to be a harder task. The roadblocks on our way make it so difficult to see where we’re going that sometimes we don’t even know whether we’re moving into the right direction.
May we learn with history that in times like these we ought to try to see the big picture. Be patience and persistent not to give up and keep moving. Eventually, one step closer can give you a better view of your path.
