“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.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Where you are doesn’t matter at all if you don’t know where you want to go.
It’s a lot like life, isn`t?
In life we need a purpose, we need directions on how to get there and we need help to do that, too. We can’t possibly do it alone. When we are young our parents are there to help us, when in school our teachers are there to guide us and at work we have our colleagues and mentors to oversee us.
It’s also the same when we travel. Without planning ahead it`s kind of hard to go around places especially if you are not familiar with it. You can easily get lost if you don’t have a map with you or if you don’t have a friend who knows the place better than you do. When I travel I always do some pre-departure stuff.
First I need to make sure that I booked a plane ticket and booked a hotel, prepare the things I need to take with me and make a list of what I want to do when I arrive there, the places I want to go to and the people I want to visit & meet.
I will want to search the web to check the map and the landmarks; that way I won’t get lost when I get there. But of course some would want to do things spontaneously without planning. This might be an idea too, especially for those who love living life at its extreme.
Still, some planning and organizing doesn`t hurt, right?:)
I think that having directions is helpful in romantic relationships, also. If you ask me, I really don`t see the reason why a person would engage in a relationship for the sake of just being into one.
Why investing too much time and emotions on someone you can’t see yourself spending the rest of life with?
The relationship might not work in the long run but at least you won’t regret anything because what is important is that you did all that you could, right?
In our careers, it’s always up to us if we want to go up the corporate ladder or not. Oftentimes, I hear people ask why they don’t get promoted or why for the past years they are still on the same position they had when they started.
But I’ll ask this instead; did you draw up a career path for yourself? Did you have a plan on how to get there? Is the plan you made feasible and is it enough to get you where you want to be?
In the end it’s about what you did or did not do. Don’t you agree? I’d like to hear your thoughts about this.
If we get confused in life, if we get lost and we don’t know where we are, we only have to stop and focus on where we want to go. We might need to face some obstacles along the way (which is a good thing:)) and we may get there a little late but what is important is that we know that we will get there somehow with perseverance and guidance from others. The main thing is to stay focus; stay determined, positive and take lots of action!
So, tell me, what do you do when you lack directions? How do you overcome that moment of clutter and confusion? What do you do to set yourself back on track?
I would really love to hear these answers from you:)) and I`m much looking forward to that!:)) Don`t keep me waiting, ok?:D
