Yesterday I talked about setting outcomes. Going for the outcome is not the only stage – you also want to enjoy the journey. On our NLP Practitioner training we encourage students to set clear outcomes, but also to focus on enjoying the journey.
Last year we went to Thailand. Thailand we found to be one of the most beautiful and friendly places in the world. However the airline we flew with was less than beautiful. The flight was cheap, however it was about 24 hours of less than friendly service with poor facilities. When we got there we felt exhausted and didn’t real enjoy the first day of the holiday. Had we traveled with a more comfortable airline, we might have arrived feeling more refreshed.
That was only a short journey, however some peoples’ arduous journeys seem to last most of their lives and they don’t get a chance to enjoy it when they get there.
So have a clear outcome, enjoy the journey and love the destination when you get there!
Quote for today…
There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
