It’s all about the journey
“How long should you try? Until.” Jim Rohn
Every month for the last two years, I send my son a “Personalized Action Plan” (PAP). He created the idea when establishing the blog and weekly newsletter he co-authors with his best friend. What is the PAP? Basically, a way to keep yourself accountable. I’m not sure anyone else to whom he suggested the PAP is still doing it; but I am. It’s my goals for the month. Ultimately, the monthly goals are the building blocks leading to long term goals…perhaps. Or, maybe, they simply lead to physical, mental and spiritual well-being. According to Jordan Peterson: “It isn’t precisely attaining the aim that makes us happy as we all know if we’ve ever attained anything because as soon as we attain it then the whole little game ends and we have to come up with another game…Human beings are weird creatures because we’re much more activated by having an aim and moving towards it than attainment.”
So, I keep moving towards my goals; perhaps I will achieve them. Even if I do not, I will enjoy the journey.
