I am sure many got up this morning looking for the China news that they were supposed to be making an announcement today... and they may still be. But last night elsie was in chat and said something that made me think of this. So wanted to share.
The Intel Maze... this process is one we are not supposed to know, and there is no handbook telling us if we are right or not, until after the fact. So all we can do is follow the intel down the path it is leading us to see where it goes. If we can do that knowing that some paths are short and some are rather long, and all but one will end up with a dead end. We need to understand and set our expectations up front, that we will most likely be hitting a dead end, but unless we follow it we wont find the correct path.

I think everyone has become so burnt out on all of these paths that seemingly lead to nowhere and its understandable, but there are two options, and both are healthy if done with the right perspective. Take each and every path you come upon and follow it to the end knowing the odds are you will have to turn around and find a new path. Or you can sit and wait outside the maze and when those that are navigating the maze find that one and final path to the end, you will get a text message alerting you. While the second is by far the easiest method, but you will lose the experience of completing the maze, and that is why I am still here.... I have decided to enjoy it and that includes every dead end I come upon.... now if we could just figure a way to stop from going down the same dead ends over and over.... lol lol
(added goorooo definitions from below)
OK lets take this one more step. and define Goooorooos as maze navigators and thier navigation styles...
RUNNER OUTERS - Some navigators prefer to run out ahead and then if they find a path with promise they report back and get the team to follow. These tend to be very popular as they do not report every path they find but rather only the paths that show some promise, and keep the rest of the nonsense paths from the general public. (These would be like PTR IMO)
MAP DRAWERERS - This type only goes by what they have in writing and that is the final word until it changes, they lead you down these long and laborious paths that are well laid out and much research has gone into it, but in the end everyone walks away confused once the path changes as it was another dead end.
SHOUT IT OUT - These tend to yell and scream at the top of thier lungs everytime they see a path, and this is the last path and we should be at the end by tomorrow or the next day at the latest... but take it as rumor...
I am sure there are more.... lol ShawnW
