Beware of plateaus

places we rest

plateau is a flat, elevated landform that rises sharply above the surrounding area on at least one side. Plateaus occur on every continent and take up a third of the Earth’s land. They are one of the four major landforms, along with mountains, plains, and hills. Annnnd, none of that is related to this podcast.

Except in the form of a metaphor. Let’s talk about metaphorical plateues (in goal reaching, in life, in comparing ourselves to others.

  • Life does not stop when you reach one
  • The climbing in between plateaus is where life happens
  • Plateaus can be both good and bad
  • I really really can’t spell “plateau” by myself
  • What plateaus have you had in your life?

We say something is an “uphill battle” or it’s all “downhill from here.”

Listen for the full story! just 10 (ish) minutes, as always! With pauses for reflecting. Neat.
