Seeing the Future

We are all going somewhere, either a place that we haven chosen and set our course for or wherever the current takes us. It might not seem so bad to go with the flow if we could be deposited on some beautiful beach somewhere with no effort on our part, but there are two dangers. First, that we'll end up instead on a cold, stony shore. And second, that if we allow ourselves to float along like a dead thing, we will become one even before we stop breathing. Life isn't about the where we end up, it's about what we do along the way. So, we can envision a beautiful place and set a course for it. It doesn't matter if we ever get there, the journey will be much more interesting.

How do you set a goal if you don't already have one? You have to look for it. You have to see inside yourself and outwardly at the same time. Stare out the window. Walk or drive to the highest point you can find. Look into the farthest distance, it's somewhere near there.

Doing the Right Thing
and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
