At last! On the island! Picture

Here’s some great advice from Charlie Gilkey’s post called Leave the Canoe Behind.

What got you here won’t (necessarily) get you there.

In some ways it parallels my post, How Old Are Your Tapes? and yet I think Gilkey reaches a more compelling and poignant conclusion.

Leave the Canoe Behind is a good reminder that a time comes when we have to leave old tools (or tapes) behind to move forward.  And we have to trust that if we need them again we’ll be able to find them or be able create them again when we need them.
