What matters isn’t the destination, but the journey.
Many people say that, but to me, that’s far from the truth. Both the journey and the destination matter.
However, how you feel when you get to the destination is a reflection of how your journey was.
For people who fail to enjoy parts of the journey, they end up looking stressed out upon arrival. And with long faces.
This shouldn’t be the case because this is supposed to be what they worked for all these years, right?
Now I’m not an advocate of the “travel the world and forget your sorrows movement”. I neither support nor oppose it. I just think it’s cool.
My point is, create happy moments while on your journey. Work hard and play.
Playing doesn’t need to involve going on vacations. People make it look like vacations are the only way to let off some steam and cool down.
When workaholics like me hear that, we end up not cooling down at all because vacations look like a big deal.
A casual visit to a place with someone, zero work days, movie nights, and a few more are much easier to work with. I do those easily, and you can too, just in case you’re not the vacation kinda guy…or gal.
Just create experiences. Start small, and then get better.
