Journey vs. Destination

Published

We’re all keen to arrive at the destination. Nothing wrong with that.

Just don’t forget the journey.

Travel should be comfortable and not leave you exhausted at the end. Nobody wants to say “I’ve arrived!” and then promptly collapse in a heap on the floor.

Take in the sights along the way, converse with others. You’ll bring a lot more with you to your destination than you planned and people will welcome you even more.

The point isn’t to reach the end note as fast as you can. It’s to dance while the music is playing. The final note isn’t more important than any other note.
