I’ve always been committed to goals…always ultimately pointing towards a “success” destination. This magical place called success I was traveling to would ROCK! I’d know I’d made it when I got there.
In 07/08 I actually thought I’d reached that point in my life. I’d “achieved” this destination I’d so vividly painted in my mind’s eye.
Those of you who know me well…know that 08/09 has been less then a vision of perfection for me. What I thought would be my success destination has turned out to be the continuation of a process…the process being “my life.”
So I stumbled on this great video from TED Talks – speaker Richard St. John. He shares insights on his Success Journey. I was so struck by his talk because he’s very direct – takes maybe 3 minutes to watch. But in those 3 minutes I found an affinity in his sharing.
My take-away…I’m not alone here…I’m not done. It’s still a journey…only now…I really know it’s not a destination.
