….connect the dots….

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. – Steve Jobs

I’ve been absent from my blog for several weeks as I ran for a position in my union. Sadly, last evening, after the votes were tallied, I was not successful, yet I am glad I made the effort to work for change.

Many people today have given words of advice around how when one door closes, another one opens. I like the above quote better – I cannot connect the dots of what my future holds right now, but I have to trust in something. I trust that the right path will become known soon.

  1. Absolutely, I also believe in the philosophy of your ‘connect the dots’ quote. And it fits perfectly with the top quote on my own blog, pointing out there is no path, “the path is made by walking.” Though your union bid was not successful, the time you spent on that campaign was important to you, and therefore surely “successful” in itself, as its own activity, independent of the outcome. Keep doing the things that matter to you…
