“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” – The Beatles
We never can seem to get there fast enough. Starting a business, growing a business, it can never happen fast enough. We want our dreams to be realized today. We are impatient for the bright future we see in front of us. And each step forward we take is soon forgotten as the endless road of ‘everything that isn’t’ stretches before us.
We work so hard to achieve a goal and when we hit it, it falls away and is forgotten. All the time spent worrying about its completion, all the energy and love poured into its creation is left behind. What was once the greatest goal becomes one tiny achievement in many.
The Current State
Working towards something that is so personal is god damn scary. And damn, it isn’t easy either. Our wins and losses are ours alone. The pressure we put on our Self can often be crippling and abusive.
We worry about wasted hours, of being wrong, of being not good enough. We call our Self a loser and failure. We chastise our Self not achieving more each day. And the worst of it, we don’t stop and celebrate when we do achieve, we just move on to the next.
What’s the point when we treat our Self like this? Why is it so easy to be caught up the daily picture, rather than the greater one? Why can’t we see that every moment that passes takes us one step closer to our dream?
