Focusing fully on a key goal could, unless we are careful, cause us to lose sight of our heartfelt values as we go about attempting to reach the objective by any means available to us.
The chances of us falling into such a mindset might be tied to the pressures we feel under to get to the proverbial destination. It is difficult nowadays to remember we have the option to also enjoy the experience, not only ‘get through it’ or survive it’.
Deciding to embrace a more positive approach, travelling towards a chosen objective, even by any means known to us, becomes an occasion to find pleasure during the journey of discovery and progress.
By any means in terms of personal development, implying legal means of course, opens the world of learning to us. There are no excuses not to sign up to the concept of continuous learning. Resources, many of them free, are at our disposal if we choose to see them.
With just a small effort we are able to expand our understanding of any subject we may wish to develop our knowledge of by any means thought up by someone, somewhere. Learning opportunities surround us indeed.
