Making the Invisible Visible

Here is Seth Godin's post:

The Invisible Crossroads

In Career World, crossroads don't happen very often. Should I go to college? Which one? Should I quit this job? Where should I apply...

In Project World, on the other hand, every day offers a choice that could change things. Should you start a new project? Organize a conference? Open a new channel of social media? Quit something you're doing right now to make time for something else?

It's easy to get stressed and excited about the infrequent crossroads. It's just as easy to ignore the daily opportunities you have to change everything.

The last line struck me, as it relates to mindful eating.  Each time you have the opportunity to eat, that is an invisible crossroads.  Quick fix diets are one of those big project -- a very visible crossroads.  You are focused, cutting way back on your portions, and exercising like a fiend.

Mindful eating is about actually SEEING the invisible crossroads.  Picking out the "daily opportunities you have to change everything".

Are you looking for the invisible today?
