Tree Time versus Forest Time: Can’t see the Forest for the Trees!

There is a popular saying that goes like this: pete-tree-kiss
You can’t see the forest for the trees!

The idea is that we can get so focused on the trees – a single tree or a few trees – that we can lose sight of the bigger picture – the forest.  This quote is a great reminder that we need to remember to regularly rise above the trees to rediscover the forest.

This quote has me thinking…..

  • Trees and Forests – both are important.
  • I tend to focus more on the Forest then the Trees.  How about you? My hunch is that most people tend to gravitate toward one over the other.
  • Intentionally schedule both Tree Time and Forest Time. We need to regularly focus on a few specifics at hand, while not losing sight of the bigger picture.

Pete Nelson, the star of Treehouse Masters, seems to model what I am suggesting.  He is always taking in the bigger Forest view, while searching for that special tree that he falls in love with.

Let’s do the same!

All the best to you,
