The original usage of the word “watershed” describes a ridge of land separating waters that then flow into two different bodies.
A “watershed moment” is a turning point, the exact moment that changes the direction of an activity or situation, a dividing point from which things will never be the same. It’s considered momentous, though a watershed moment is often recognized in hindsight.
I’m not ready just yet to share my watershed moment, but I recently experienced one. It was momentous and didn’t occur in hindsight.
When was your most recent watershed moment?
