Heads Up

One of the most commonly used phrases when something is flying through the air into a mass of people.

Heads up.

I'm sure that many of us have noticed the irony of everyone putting their heads down when they hear heads up, or maybe I am the only one who thinks about that...

Nonetheless, it is an intriguing phrase.

Regardless, calling 'heads up' is just a suggestion that increases awareness of whatever is coming your way.

Furthermore, keeping your head up is more common and necessary than sometimes meets the eye. 

It does not have to be a literal object making its way towards can be much more.

Figuratively speaking, there will be several things 'thrown' your way that will require you to be alert.  Knowing how to maneuver through these challenges can and will be difficult at times.

No matter what though...keep your head up.

It is much easier to be engaged when things are going well, but the true test is when they are not going your way.  Those are the moments when you head should be at its highest point.

Your head should be up in those moments for several reasons like:

Seeing when the next opportunity is...


Preparing if something else is coming your way...

And most importantly, because you can't see anything looking down. 

It may not always be easy, but reminding yourself to keep your head up through whatever process is beneficial and can work wonders.  Keep your eyes on the prize and move towards them.

Next time you hear an urgent 'heads up' and a sporting event, I'd still suggest taking cover and protecting yourself...

But in difficult times, rather than covering up, stay calm, embrace the challenge, lift your head and keep the momentum moving.  Journeys are long, but the best is yet to come.

Until next time,

Long Live The People
