“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t care much care where-” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat
–Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Too often this is the mentality we hold. Not necessarily on purpose, but we will aimlessly go through life wondering where to go next, despite not having any goals we expect to end up where we want. But how can you finish a race without a finish line?
If that is the case, stop for a few moments and write down some goals… or even just one. Something that you can work towards so that you don’t just go through the motions. Do it so that you can better yourself and your life. Do it so that you have a direction to go and purpose in your steps. Do it so you can actually live your life, and not just exist.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.” Don’t be one of those people. You are capable of so much more. So which way do you want to go?
