Put your nose against a painted canvas, and all you’ll see is a blur of color. But step back a few paces and a beautiful landscape or portrait appears.
The same applies in a vertical direction. With our feet planted on the ground, the view is limited. From higher up, however, we get a panorama. What we saw up close is now one part of a whole.
So, why “Twenty Thousand Feet”? It’s an analogy that describes a way of looking at and managing life. From twenty thousand feet up, mission, vision, values, roles, goals, projects and next steps have context. We see how they fit into the total experience.
Twenty thousand feet is the perfect altitude from which to spend a significant part of our discretionary time. It’s high enough to provide perspective, but not so far in the clouds that we lose sight of necessary individual tasks.
