We can’t fit a square peg in a round hole.

No matter how hard we try, it won’t fit. Trying to force it won’t help.

Sometimes in life we try so hard and try to force things.

Maybe our effort isn’t the problem. Maybe we’re trying too hard at the wrong things.

Maybe trying harder isn’t the answer. Maybe being more self-aware is the answer. Maybe working smarter not harder is the answer.

Pause. Take a step back. Reassess the situation.

Look at the various shapes and sizes in our life from a distance.

Analyze them. Examine them. Study them. Clearly see them.

If we are really trying hard and not getting the results we hoped for, we may be trying to force something that doesn’t fit and isn’t meant to be.

Where do we fit in this world?
