Final Destination

What’s your final destination? I mean, your end all be all place you have your eyes set on from where you are right now. That place. Where is that for you?

Not only is this a good question to ask yourself and ponder over; but it’s also one to think about as you reflect where you’ve been, comparing to where you are, and where you’re headed.

Recently, I was having a conversation with one of my clients. He was preparing for travel on the next day, and said, “I hate the packing, the traveling, and the journey to go anywhere. I get more out of the final destination. That’s what’s fun to me”.

I was curious, and asked him a question. So, you mean to tell me that you could just skip all the in between and just get right to where you’re going? Then, I said to him, so, why not just go straight to the graveyard? This really got him to thinking about how he seems to be traveling through life in the very same way. He is so in a hurry to do the next thing, get to the next place, engage in the next whatever, while in the middle of something else.

It became apparent to him how he never seems to be fully present, or even enjoy where he is. It’s all about where he just left or where he’s headed, but pretty much nothing but complaints about where he is.

So, I ask you. What’s your aim, goal, place, thing, person, or desired end? What are you shooting for? When it’s all said and done, what do you want it to look like? Think about that for yourself. Right now, from where you are, when you’ve reached that thing you’ve been striving for, what is it going to mean to you? Is that going to be it, or will you be on to the next thing?

I know this is something to think about, so take some time and do just that. What’s next for you? What’s driving you to where you’re headed? If you were to take everything one step at a time to get you to where you’re going, looking at it from where you are right now, what’s your final destination?

Let me know your thoughts below.

  1. Makes you think. If simply getting to the destination was the end all be all, why not just go on to the grave? As I continue on my journey, I have noticed the “getting to” has been more fulfilling than having arrived.
