Buy the ticket, take the ride.
Hunter S. Thompson
I like to remind myself of this powerrful quote every time I’m questioning wether I should go out (partying/ on an adventure/ hanging out with friends) or not.
But what makes this quote so powerful is that it comes from the legenday Hunter S. Thompson. Meaning: If you don’t get goosebumps reading this, you should probably go and read one (or preferably many more) books by Thompson!
Establishing goals is all right if you don’t let them deprive you of interesting detours.
Actually establishing goals is more than all right, it is awesome!
Having both, long term and short term goals keeps you motivated and focused. But it is true that you should not forget the beauty of spontaneous moments because of your strict focus.
Be prepared to take detours, to discover, to enjoy.
