Long Range Vision

~ There are no hopeless situations in life .... only men who have grown hopeless about them - A Barclay Comment

As a boy I loved to wander over to a nearby park and watch the older men play checkers. One day one of them invited me to play. At first it looked easy. I captured one, then another of his checkers. But then, suddenly, he took one checker and hopped and skipped right across the board and yelled, "King me!" With that king, he processed to wipe me off the board.

That day I learned about long-range vision. No one minds losing a few checkers if he's headed for king territory. ~ Howard Hendricks
