“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin
First off, I do not come on the internet to be put in my place and straightened out by a quotation! This quote put me right in my place and strangely gave me inspiration and motivation to keep working toward my “crazy” goals.
How often do you hear “I need a vacation” among coworkers, friends, family, or strangers? I am guilty of it myself, especially these days. I try to be quite positive about my life and the future, but lately, I’ve found myself looking forward to the times when I can place my quite interestingly stressful job on the shelf for a week or two. Yes, a vacation is always useful for maintaining balance in life, however, yearning and counting down for the next one is an indication some thing needs to change. Starting the week just to count down to the weekend is also pretty bad too. Nevertheless, I found a new goal – create a life I don’t need to escape from.
*Note to self* It said create, not stumble upon. Check mate!
