What Happens When We Wander Off the Path to Our Goals?

I’m hanging out at the Life List Club blog today. Come on by and join the conversation…

The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.The path to our goals is rarely as straight as we would like. The further out or bigger the goal, the bendy-er and thornier the path seems.

But is this really a bad thing?

The Life List Club is turning 1! In honor, we’re having an extra-special Milestone Party June 29. You’re all invited to join in the fun and answer a question about your own life lists:

What goal on your Life List has held the most surprise or invoked the most unforeseen benefits/changes?

  1. Have I ever told you how much I love you header picture? It’s great!

  2. When I wander off the path, I start looking for a fork in the road to take me back.

    Sonia G Medeiros:

    there is something about wandering into the wilderness that enhances creativity.

    did you know that we actually wander when we close our eyes to take a break from our current tasks. before long there will be an app that will trace your conscious thoughts, as well as your unconscious thoughts – imagine that!

    where did your last dream take you… better not answer that ๐Ÿ™‚

    oh those life-long lists of goals…

    as Robert Frost would say:

    ‘…The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep…’

    i think i wander the most, when i visit a book store to buy a title i plan to use as research, and end up with a wheelbarrow of books that have no connection at all – get home and realize i forgot the book i wanted to purchase…

    oh and i have almost 1000 free kindle books – and http://www.gutenberg.org is creating ebooks as i type ๐Ÿ™‚

    hope life is treating you kindly!
