Several weeks ago, I went skydiving. It’s been on my to-do list for some time (as you might remember, I like trying new things).
A lot of us just want to be told what to do.
What’s the best car to buy? What should I invest my money in? What should I eat or drink to lose weight?
Sometimes, the journeys we wish to embark upon are long.
It can be a long journey to lose weight. Or a long journey to achieve certain competencies. Or a long journey to build the kind of
life that you want.
Does this mean, then, that we shouldn’t take these journeys?
I’m about to embark on an adventure that both excites and scares me. I’ve chosen to study a master’s course in General Management in The Netherlands. It lasts a year and a half and it’s a long way from home. I have no contacts there.
I often hear people saying they want to get in shape for summer, for their upcoming wedding or to attract a mate. Unfortunately, these events are short-lived: weddings end, summers pass and people “let themselves go” once in a relationship.
