We often hear expressions like “the journey is its own reward,” yet most of us tend to live jumping from one achievement to the next. We often think that everything will be so much better when we graduate, get a job, get a raise, buy our own house, get married, pay off our car, start our own business, or retire. We talk about living for the moment, yet remain focused on the next accomplishment, purchase or life milestone.
Benny Lewis shared this great video recently that puts this in perspective.
Instead of looking for the next mountain to climb or goal to cross off your bucket list, how about just enjoying what you are doing now?
