This is going to sound funny, but I sort of forgot the day, yesterday, so here I am, doing a post on Thurday to make up.
I mean, it just won't do to just keep skipping posts...
Pictures are still coming. I'll try to get them downloaded this weekend.
In the mean time, I thought I'd write about something that's been on my mind since Monday.
Al Diaz wrote this post about life and achieving goals.
He's so right. Setting goals is a wonderful tool, especially when you want to live your life to the full, but not when they blind you to the possibilities life offers.
As he said, we sometimes think we're against a wall. We make a plan to break through it, but when we do, we discover we're actually facing a mountain.
Most of us continue trying to break through as if it's still the wall we thought it was. Some of us aren't even digging through the right mountain.
It'll end up taking up so much time that you don't have time for anything else. To me, that's just not worth it, no matter how wonderful the goal may be.
So, if you're a goal-setter, remember to evaluate your plans for those goals every now and then. And remember to take a break from it every now and then. It's important to rest too.
Don't tell me you'll rest when you're dead. That'll just age you faster.
What about you? Have you ever come so very close to giving up, only to realize you've been going about something the wrong way?
