This is not a typical blog about perspective – optimist or pessimist, Democrat or Republican, man or woman, pro-this or anti-that. The tragic event this week in Boston actually puts the normal conversation about perspective in perspective. Sadly we seem to get too many reminders about the things that truly matter in life because these man-made tragedies keep happening. Oklahoma City. Columbine. 9/11. Virginia Tech. Sandy Hook. I don’t know how to solve the problem. Hopefully someone is working on that and comes up with a solution real soon. I do know that life is too short for some and too long for others.
The devastating tragedy this week certainly made me stop and think about keeping things in
perspective. Not everything is a big deal. Not everything is important. Not everything has to be done immediately. But when things are truly a big deal, or really important, or must be
done immediately then we should act accordingly because we have kept things in perspective.
I am going to keep this blog short so that you can spend more time doing things that are more important in life than reading a blog. Please remember to keep things in perspective, before it’s too late.
I’ll let you be the judge. I would love to hear your comments.
