Doors Open and Close …


… for a reason.Closing Doors 

Sometimes you need to open the door and walk through into your future …

Sometimes you need to close the door, so you can focus your energy and attention on what remains …

In our professional and personal lives, we have many options.  Some are good ones and some are not.  We are called to make decisions about what to pursue, what to continue, and into what to put our energy and passion.  Sometimes we have adequate information to do so and sometimes we do not.  

The decision is still there to be made … and avoiding the decision is a decision in itself.  You will focus on something … the least useful choice is to focus your energy on not deciding.

Sometimes you just need to follow Kenny’s advice and choose one of two basic options:

“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run.”

The Gambler lyrics by Kenny Rogers.

As usual, the trick is you accurately decide what to do, so you make the right decision about that door.  Doors do not always come with convenient and easily decipherable labels.  Moreover, even when they do, the labels may or may not be very accurate or helpful.  More on that later.

Staring at a doorframe with slightly tilted head and slightly puzzled look on face in the Heartland ….
