One sure way to get and stay anxious is to focus on the results you want to happen, the destination you want to arrive at – a coveted job or position, a successful venture, party, or dinner. It doesn’t matter – as long as your focus is on how you want the future to look like, it isn’t at all on what’s happening around you right now.
And that means you are missing out on so much! On how you’re impacting those around you. On the wins and learnings about what you’re in the process of creating. How you feel in your gut about what you’re doing. Any opportunities that open up during this process of living.
If you’re not present for the process as it unfolds, you miss out big time.
So, as Harry Kim realized in the final episode of the series “Startrek Voyager”, it’s the journey that matters. With that in mind, I raise a glass of something delicious to salute the beauty and power of the process of living. Here’s to the journey!
