Begin with the Journey in Mind

In the Seven Habits of Highly Successful people Steven Covey coined his classic first habit in life and business, Begin with the end in mind. Knowing the desired end in life and business creates a success mindset and facilitates goal achievement. But from a happiness perspective knowing exactly what one wants the end to be before he starts the journey and attempting to control every step of the process along the journey leaves little room for the universe. We Americans are certainly goal oriented, which accounts for our great economic success but many of us do not enjoy the journey.

So, try approaching tomorrow with an acceptance that all you have control over is the journey not the destination.

Begin with the Journey in Mind is the title of my current book in process.
