There’s no undo button when woodcarving.
Every piece you cut, trim, or shave off is a piece you will never get back. While that might initially sound terrifying, you quickly realize that the key is letting go of what you were planning to do and adapting to what’s already happened.
Life is similar. Every action we take is irreversible on the one-way street of time. While we can always return and re-work a section and improve the outcome, there’s no undoing what’s already happened.
The key is to accept the present for what it is, take a step back to see the whole picture and adapt your strategy accordingly.
Focusing too narrowly on a situation without #perspective can often make things worst.
