Jump or remove obstacles

I was walking to my daughter’s school today. After the thunderstorm yesterday evening there were a lot of branches that had fallen from the trees.

I saw a lot of kids in their bicycles crossing the branches bravely.

  • Some went around the branches
  • Some went inbetween the branches
  • Some went over the branches

But one kid crossed the branch and stopped. He went back and removed the branch from the pathway. I was impressed.

We are busy in our day to day routines.

How many obstacles do we keep crossing?

How much of our daily routines is crossing obstacles?

How often do we stop and remove the obstacle?

Not just for us, when we cross it again but also for others who use the same path.

Can we set aside some time to remove obstacles and not just jump them?
