I recently had to change some settings in my Google account. I wasn’t really sure where to start, so like everything else I googled it! Three dots. It brought me to the three dots in the upper right-hand corner. From there it was a menu of options. Black Friday website looking to change my order? Three dots in the upper right-hand corner. Planning a spring break trip? Using a travel website? Three dots in the upper right-hand corner.
I love the three dots. It’s where you go for any and all options. It’s where you go to find the whole of what you’re trying to do. These three dots are valuable because:
* They give you options. Choices of what to do and navigate where you’re trying to go.
* It’s the next step. You’re stuck currently where you? The three dots will take you to the next step on your journey. Facing a tough issue? The three dots brings you one step closer on trying to navigate.
* They allow you to do something. If you know my work, you know a pet peeve of mine is saying there’s nothing I can do. Three dots allows you to do something. You’re not just giving up, staring at the blank screen, or going to find the tech whiz millennial to help you fix your situation. You’re trying to navigate and fix it on your own.
What are the situation’s in your life now that you need three dots for? Do you need some direction or a list of menu choices on how to handle the situation that you are confronted with? We are faced with these situations all the time. I’m currently reading The Obstacle is the Way and the book talks about dealing with obstacles and learning to navigate through them. Not necessarily road blocks, but bends in the road. Look for the three dots in your life to continue to move forward in your journey.
