Pathfinding or pathmaking?
A good question.
And the answer is yes…
… both, and it depends.
Looking back on my life, I’ve been a quiet pathmaker. I’ve stepped out and done things that were not usual in my culture or era. And I’ve created room for others to follow.
Yet I have other friends who are brilliant pathfinders, creating a way through obstacles using insight gained from the past.
And the Sage of Ecclesiastes offers wise advice about paying attention to the seasons: there is a time for everything.
However, I wonder if what we face now calls for pathmakers to get their boots on and create a different way forward.
We don’t know the destination but suspect there is a better way.
