Which Path Are You On?

Leading me down the path

There are times in life when you have a goal, and the path to get there seems pretty clear. You head in that direction, and with minor corrections along the way, you get to where you hoped to go, or close.

Other times the goal is less clear, but the path seems to lead you along. Along the way there are corrections, forks in the road where each possible path seems equal. Given that you have no clear goal, it doesn’t really matter which path you take. To paraphrase a famous cat (or was it a queen?), “either way, you’ll get there”.

Both scenarios can be satisfying, and it’s good to mix them up. Following the first keeps you focused, and following the second helps you explore.

I’ve spent a lot of time exploring, with occasional periods of focus. That’s served me well.

How about you? Do you take time for both?
