Big picture success

Sometimes I wonder if I subconsciously

Set myself up for failure-so cautiously

Do I proceed that every hurdle serves to distract

Me from my path, I easily get sidetracked

The forest for the trees I miss completely

The bull’s eye in the center I cannot see

I get mired in inconsequential details

In seeing the big picture I inexorably fail..


When I take on a project large in scope

That I would be able to prove myself, I hope

I want to do it right, I want to please everyone

Inevitably roadblocks appear as soon as I’ve begun

Some people are displeased, some feathers get ruffled

In silencing dissent, my voice often gets muffled..


By being burnt repeatedly I’ve had to learn this lesson

Every step of a process may not proceed with perfection

Not everyone is on board at every step of the way

You must remember the ultimate goal at the end of the day

To be flexible and forgiving, not sweating the small stuff

Is the way to accomplish goals ambitious and tough
