Near the major intersection southeast of our home, there is a small sign that reads, “obra en proceso.” Work in progress.
The sign is quite understated given the scope of the project. One day, we found the entire intersection had been shut down and traffic patterns rerouted. The traffic lights were gone, and an enormous hole had been dug. For months, workers have built a major infrastructure project that will clear congestion near the US-Mexico border. The project will take between a year or two to complete.
In the context of our interior lives, it takes courage to undergo major change, either personally or professionally. It is far easier to live in the untruth that we are self-sufficient, but doing so is like relying on old infrastructure.
Blessed are those who have the guts to declare themselves a work in progress. They will defy the Four Horsemen of Fixed Mindset.
