Walk, cycle, drive, catch a train, hop on a bus, travel by tram, flag down a cab, find a flight, our desired destination awaits.
Our desired destination need not, of course, be an actual location. We may have a certain goal regarding our level of competency or skill concerning an ability we wish to develop.
Then again, we could be looking to reach a new point in our career with a promotion or change of job. Having a desired destination provides us with an objective, a point of reference against which actions, efforts and undertakings can be benchmarked.
The consultant Brian Tracy noted: “If what you are doing is not moving you towards your goals, then it is moving you away from your goals.”
And right now, what is your desired destination? To what extent are you taking the steps that will lead you there?
As mentioned in the ‘Moving forward‘ vlog post of June 2011 (click here to view), “By keeping our objective in sight, knowing where we want to get to, and indeed why, we fuel our determination to avoid getting distracted along the way.”
Though the desired destination may seem either near to hand or far off in the distance, today offers the opportunity to close the remaining gap if we so wish. Intentions, as ever, play an important part in the reaching of any desired destination.
Or at least that’s how it seems. Please feel free to share your input on the issue of a desired destination by leaving a comment below.
