And sometimes I want to shift altitude. I want the one-year horizon. The five year view. I want to look at today from the vantage point of five years ago or five years from now. I can go up to 14,000 feet (about as high as I've ever been on Mount Whitney) or jump in an airplane and rise up to 40,000.
And, sometimes, I want to make a twelve inch shift. That is, the shift from what I can see in front of me, to what it is my heart wants or sees.
Shifting altitude is about shifting perspective. Getting out of the emotion of this moment and looking at life through a bigger lens.
Some folks live by the mantra "Live in the Moment!" and that's cool. But sometimes, I want to let this moment also be lived in the context of the bigger story.
