"Can't see the forest for the trees."
-- Common and very old phrase
I was looking at the phrase, can't see the forest for the trees, and generally it is intended to mean that someone is paying so much attention to the details that they cannot see the bigger picture.
Dan Miguel Ruiz says something similar in this: "We are not aware of what we really are because our attention is so focused on what we are trying to be."
I love how Abraham, Esther Hicks puts it in perspective in living a happy life: "A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don't allow the happy moment, because they're so busy trying to get a happy life."
I'll let that last one sink in. . .
