It's about progress...
Up at an Angle came to me one day when I was looking at a graph of the broader stock market, dating back to the 1920's. On this graph, from a zoomed-out, eagle-eyed view, all of the major financial crises of the past 100 years looked like tiny hiccups on a line that otherwise trudged up incessantly.
I realized that just like with the stock market, when we're in the thick of things, progress can feel impossible. We feel that we're at a standstill, if not sliding back down the hill altogether. But more often than not, when we look back with a greater perspective, we're able to see how the trend still slants upward in the direction of progress.
Even if it's shaky. Even if it's uncertain. Even if it's at an angle.
