Life is like Sudoku

Do you know this game? I love it!

Every time you fill a square with a number, it helps you find the next number, and the next number. And little by little, you fill in your grid! Everything is logical; everything is natural.

And life is like Sudoku. Every time you meet somebody, you read a book, or even walk on the street, you design new opportunities, you open new doors (consequences of your actions). And little by little, you fill in the page, the chapter and the book of your life. Everything is logical; everything is natural.

Sometimes though, you get stuck. I play the evil level right now. And I can't always fill in my grid the first time I try. So I start working on another grid and come back later on the one I am stuck. Most of the time it works! My fresh perspective allows me to find the number to fill in the entire grid.

One grid resisted me several months. I couldn't find the solution. I was really stuck. I tried several strategies. There was no way to find any new number. Finally, I managed to find the solution on my own. How did I do that? The other grids I filled in trained me and I came up with a new strategy, a new idea. Something I had never tried before. THAT was what I needed to find the next number on my grid.

People, when you are stuck, get some fresh air, try a new perspective to approach your problem and continue learning/practicing! All things come to him who waits. YOU HAVE THE SOLUTION IN YOU! And if you don't find it on your own, with my help in a coaching session, you will.
