In his famous poem The Four Quartets, TS Elliott says “We had the experience, but missed the meaning.” How true!
Too often life can become one long series of unrelated events – a conversation here, an appointment there, walking the dog, working through our to-do lists – and we miss any deeper significance they hold. If you’re anything like me, 2020 ended in a rush and the first thing that suffers in busyness is reflection time – the art of seeing the meaning in our experiences.
How do we interrupt the rush? How do we reflect on our lives? I’ve put together a short answer. The art of reflection really comes down to three words: set, reflect and record.
