“If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favorable.” ~ Seneca
There are times in our lives when we don’t have any idea where we are going or what the end result will be of a given situation. But for the most part, we need to know and should. For the sake of the outcome and it’s hopeful success.
To sail, run, walk or fly blindly, usually ends as a fools errand and more often that not in some level of (if not complete) failure. This is why we need a proverbial or literal map, sexton and knowledge of the stars to guide us on our journey. All tools of the one who seeks to gain knowledge and improve their station. Whether it be play, work or life in general.
We need to know where we are going and where we’ve been. In order to learn the lessons along the way and avoid the traps and pitfalls of those wo have come before us. As well as keeping our own journal so that those that follow us will learn from our successes as well as mistakes we will certainly make along the way.
So read, study and PRACTICE. Learn how to read the winds that guide you to the outcome you hopefully desired. But by all means. If you can…know the destination. If you don’t, how will you know when you’ve arrived?
