Noticing the big picture

Do you know the phrase - “you can’t see the wood for the trees”?  I am sure you do!

It is a good turn of phrase and it helps to check myself in not getting lost in the detail.  Sometimes I find myself trapped in the hustle and bustle of the everyday.  I am constantly checking my mobile phone, responding to e-mails and continually WhatsApping. My wife, Julie, is brilliant at reminding me to look up and notice the bigger picture - what is really important.  

I wonder if you are like me?  Do you miss things, opportunities and connections by simply walking by and not noticing?
