I set loads (and loads) of goals for myself and work towards them relentlessly. The way I see how to achieve things is very literal. I make a plan to get from A to B and go full-steam ahead. I leave no room for diversion.
However life is full of diversions…
I was on my way to work this week- running late (which never (EVER) happens) and I missed out on a car space at my train station. This meant had to park ages away, so I didn’t make my usual train. I was pretty frustrated, as I ran down the road like a crazy person at 6am…I may have used a few choice words to express myself.
But the funny thing was I ended up catching an express into the city and actually arrived earlier than expected! I had to laugh because I thought I knew the best route to get to where I needed to go- shock horror I didn’t! Life took me on a different track (literally) and I ended up arriving quicker than I would’ve originally.
Sooooo…You may think your plan is the best but that’s not always the case. Life might pull you in a new, even better direction.
You never know!
P.S. I celebrated my birthday this week, woohoo. Maybe they’re right (whoever they are)- a little bit older, a little bit wiser. Or is it a little be odder?
