All of us are on our way somewhere.
To college, to motherhood, to publication, to full-time work, to starting a business, to buying a house, to reaching out.
And because we are on our way, we wait, but waiting takes a long time. Think of road trips traveled as a child. Your destination always seemed far, the car ride long, and when the heck would you arrive, anyway?
While you wait to achieve your goal, there are easy steps to make yourself totally miserable. Interested? Read on.
Pout about how long travel to your goal takes.
Obsess over situations out of your control.
Quit activities you enjoy.
Give people the hidden finger (Don’t ask).
Forget to enjoy small successes because you focus on the big.
Work more and pray less.
Get up early, stay up late, and devote every free second to pushing yourself towards your goal.
Refuse to engage in fun.
Declare exercise optional.
Allow preoccupation to sap your free minutes.
Can you add to the list? What can you do to allow misery into your life while you travel to reach your goal?
