Some of us are in an awfully big hurry to get where we're going. And while that may be an expedient means of achieving goals I wonder how much is missed along the way.
Sometimes the journey's worth more than the destination. Take building a high-performance audio system for example. We can throw lots of money at the problem and just get 'the best' equipment there is and assume that what we've achieved must be the best. After all, it was built from the best components. Therefore…
But, more often than not, skipping the work of learning leaves us shortchanged both in personal development and the quality of where we wind up.
We've all known people who believe the ends justify the means. That whatever it takes to get somewhere is acceptable regardless of the waste and rubble left behind. I relate more with those that believe the journey is more important than the destination. After all, it's life's journey that defines our lives, not the places we've gotten to.
My advice, when it comes to building a magnificent stereo system, is to take your time and enjoy the trials, tribulations, failures, and successes getting there.
If you're like me, once you've arrived, you're ready to move on to the next.
Enjoy the ride.
