“We’re not out of the woods yet” said Dr. Yvonne Doyle at the #DowningStreetBriefing earlier this week.
Using the metaphor contained within her language, and merging it with another saying I'm much more familiar with, then I might suggest that how to get out of the wood depends whether you can see it for the trees or not.
When you’re struggling to see a real wood a map, compass or paths can be helpful - so too in your life.
Although one vlog, in my can't see the wood for the trees YouTube playlist, that I've come back to much over recent weeks is this one which suggests that there are times when just being with one tree and forgetting the wood, and forgetting getting out of it, is the perfect antidote.
My book, Can’t see the wood for the trees, provides multiple other solutions to help you to see the wood for the trees in your life and to ultimately get out of the wood and back on track.
