Focus On The Destination

Friday, October 12, 2012

Focus on the destination

To get where you want to go, be flexible about how you get there. The path is never exactly the way you thought it would be.

Achievement demands persistence, and yet being persistent is not the same as being stubborn. Achievement comes from being persistent and also flexible.

It is impossible to foresee every twist and turn in the road. You must be willing to navigate each turn as you arrive at it.

Set your goal, make your plans and preparations, and be ready to adapt when circumstances demand it. Remember that the goal is to reach the destination you’ve chosen, not necessarily to follow the exact plan you’ve laid out.

By all means, pay attention to the particulars of your path. Yet don’t get so attached to the plan that you compromise the goal.

Draw your strength and inspiration from the purpose you’ve chosen to follow and from the value you intend to create. Focus on the destination, and you’ll work your way there no matter what.

— Ralph Marston

    Flexibility has its place in Healthy lifestyle. But still...have a definite plan. This is so true. Hard and Fast often make you incompatible and difficult to live with. emoticon
