If the goal is clear, the route remains flexible. The goal, gain 1,000 meters of elevation. The first day it took 50 kilometers of cross-country skate skiing. The next morning the milestone arrived in 4 kilometers using backcountry skis to ascend to the top of a ski resort. If we see one option to achieve our goals, then we miss the adventure. Wayfinding is how we solve big questions and reach big goals.
Too often we witness overwhelmed by the number of options or frustration by the lack of choice. The boldest step is to pick one route and let the adventure unfold. It is too easy to sit in front of a departure board and look at all the possible destinations. What if we commit to a preferred location and then sort out the details? Trusting our navigational abilities is inherent in our remarkable wayfinding skills. Orient ourselves towards what matters and then embark on the journey.
