Following the footpath - Part 1

Have you often found yourself at the start of a track and are a little unsure of where to go, what to do or how long it will take?

I know for me I have been in this position many times in my life, in both sports and more recently business. I have encountered many different obstacles on my way to get here, and come across many dead ends..

That brings me to bush walking. You can try to bush bash your way in a straight line from point A to point B, but you don't know if it is safe, if there are cliffs, rivers or other things that will prevent you to get there, and you will at the very least end up with scratches and grazes and often even worse. But by following the footpath you don't have to push through the scrub, you know if there is a cliff the will be a way around it or even a ladder down. Even following the footpath you will.

Even following the footpath you will encounter obstacles, this may be a T Junction, or multiple tracks shooting off in different directions. We can look at the tracks and see what ones have been followed the most, or if one or two of them hasn't been used for a long time.

This may give you clues to which track you should follow, or if you do want to go on a bit of an adventure you can go off the track and know it will be there for you to follow.

Another way you can help yourself and your business get from point A to point B is to get Coaches and Mentors. People that have been there and know the track well. They can help guide you through sticky situations through their experience. They know the best way to go, even if this is hard work to trek uphill in order to get the best vantage point to reach the end.

As a bush walker we don't need to see all the way to the finish, all you have to do is to be able to see the next step and know that you are headed in the right direction, and that is the same in business. We never get to see the full path, but if we can see a well worn path, and do it with someone that has walked it before we increase our chances of making to the end quickly and injury free.
