The COMM:PAKT advise of the week: Enjoy the journey!
Something that stuck in my mind when I read a chapter of Tal Ben-Shahar’s book The Pursuit of Perfect was that the Perfectionist cannot enjoy the here and now because they are too focused on the goal. According to Ben-Shahar, the only thing that matters is achieving the goal and there is no failure allowed on the way to that goal.
But that’s not how you should live your life! Of course, it’s good to have goals because they motivate you to move on – but please enjoy the journey and allow yourself to make mistakes. That’s what makes us human…
If you have issues with setting goals AND enjoying the journey, maybe you want to have a look at a new website that went online recently. Check it out: Nina Grzybowski (wordpress.com)
