Take the Detour
“When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.”
Mary Kay Ash 1918 -2001, American Businesswoman,

As I see it . . . . . . .
Take the detour
I was on my way to a meeting driving on Interstate 95 . . . . At about the same time I received a text message and an alert on the radio that there was a bad accident on 95 and the lanes where blocked.
At the next exit I exited off interstate 95 and took the detour to get to the meeting.
The back up on 95 lasted for hours . . . . and if I didn’t take the detour I would have missed the meeting.
Our life is like that back up on 95 . . . . I didn’t create the back up. The backup was created by conditions outside of my control.
I had to make a choice do I stay on 95 and become part of the backup . . . . or do I take the detour and make the adjustments to get me to the meeting on time.
In my case the choice as easy to exit 95 and take the detour . . . . but not all of our life choices are that easy.
The key is you have make choices . . . . and some of those choices will be to take the detour to get you to your goals.
