This little text is an excerpt of my new book (in the making).
It’s always good to know where you are going. It’s good to have a direction. It gives hope and meaning to the people.
People without a direction usually feel lost.
Not that it would matter, but that’s just the nature of the human mind.
So, it’s a nice thing to have a clear goal. And yet knowing where you are going is not enough. You’ve got to open your eyes to what happens in the moment.
How could anyone climb a mountain just by focussing on the peak? He would stumble and fall, because he would be blind to the tiny rocks and sticks that show up with every step. Every moment opens up a new opportunity to learn. Don’t make it all about conquering the mountain.
