Another Thought for the Day

"We focus too much on accomplishments. We set goals and work hard at achieving them. The downside to this mindset is that we rarely feel satisfied or happy when we accomplish a goal. We're always looking ahead to the next thing that is supposed to make us feel fulfilled, but we never get there."

~ John Anealio

"And so, does the destination matter? Or is it the path we take? I declare that no accomplishment has substance nearly as great as the road used to achieve it. We are not creatures of destinations. It is the journey that shapes us. Our callused feet, our backs strong carrying the weight of our travels, our eyes open with the fresh delight of experiences lived."
