Quote du Jour

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” — Greg Anderson

Have the experience.

Live in the Now.

This is something I have been working on. For the last couple of years since I come up with my new life plan, I have had to force myself to live in the experience. I spent my career in Analytics where the completion of the activity or milestone is all that mattered. In business, we measure success by the numbers… sales, revenue, budget, etc.

Now, I had to train my brain for the exact opposite. Despite what my pedometer tells me, it’s not the steps that matter in my daily walks it’s the extent to which I stop and take it all in. Did I experience every moment with all of my senses? Do I look at everything with brand new eyes as if I have never seen it before? These are the things that help me truly experience a place or a moment in time. And it is that experience that brings joy, contentment, and happiness.

But it’s a journey. Don’t expect to get it right all the time. Try to stay in the moment.
