  • See The Trees

    - Not Just The Leaf!

    Have you ever gotten so focused on something tiny that you miss the whole picture? Like getting stuck looking at one leaf on a giant tree?

    There is a famous saying, “Preoccupied with a single leaf you won’t see the tree.” This saying means it’s important to see things from all sides, not just the small details. Imagine being in a forest and only looking at one leaf! You wouldn’t even notice the amazing tree it came from!

    This is important in lots of places! For example, imagine a boss at a company. They might focus so hard on making one tiny job perfect, they forget about how the whole company works together.

    Here’s a story to show you what I mean:

    There was once an artist named Sara. She was hired to paint a giant picture on a wall. She started painting a small part, making every tiny detail perfect. But days went by, and she was still just working on that tiny bit!

    The people who hired her wanted a big, beautiful picture that covered the whole wall. But all they saw was this one small part, even though it was pretty. They told Sara to think about the whole wall, not just the tiny piece.

    Finally, Sara realized her mistake. She had been so focused on the little part, she forgot about the whole picture! So she started again, thinking about the entire wall. And guess what? She made an amazing picture that was even better than she first thought because it all fits together!

    So remember, it’s good to pay attention to details, but don’t forget to see the bigger picture too! While details are important, getting too absorbed in them can prevent us from seeing the larger context. 

    Whether it’s in art, business, or life in general, it’s crucial to step back and view the ‘tree’ instead of getting lost in the ‘leaves’.
