Pleasure In Pursuit

Eastern philosophy often preaches the value of releasing desire as the key to happiness. We westerners don’t do so well with that. We like our goals. We enjoy attainment.

However, we also often forget the joy of pursuit. We wrap ourselves up in the need for achievement – the next job, the big sale, the smooth event. We forget about the pleasure of the road we are traveling.

  1. I agree; the journey is often more memorable than the actual goal achievement. It is useful to align yourself with those who maintain positive goals and appreciate the journey without attempting to break the sound barrier with their feats!
