This morning, Siri was navigating me to my morning meeting. As I proceeded to the highway, her chipper British accent (my preferred setting) alerted me to the road ahead.
“There is roadwork ahead, but it is still the fastest route.”
I know Siri didn’t intend to be profound, but she struck me that way. When obstacles are in our way, our tendency is often to go a different route, to turn around, to go the long way or find a short-cut. We don’t want to slow down and go through the obstacles.
Yet, it is still the fastest route? Perhaps it is because it is not always the destination, but the journey we are on that is important. If we skip an obstacle, we may skip an important moment that is a key point in our life.
Thanks, Siri for the morning thoughts!
