Wizzle...


Introduction to Woozles
A woozle is a phenomenon caused by obsessively following one's own footsteps while thinking you are covering new ground. The presence of a woozle generally can be taken as an indication that you have become too focused on your immediate task and need to take a look at the larger picture in order to see where you have gone wrong.
According to Pooh, Woozles frequently travel with Wizzles. Woozles are first mentioned in a Pooh storybook when Pooh Bear and Piglet attempt to capture a "Woozle", but it is later revealed that the two woozles and two wizzles were really the footprints made in the snow by the duo themselves, an error pointed out by Christopher Robin as he watches the two go round and round the larch spinney at least five times.
