There is a lot of pressure on to succeed.
Sadly, for most of us working is something that we ‘have to do’ rather than something that lights us up. While I believe strongly that you should Design Your Life, a bit of strategy is important. Whether we stick with that strategy or not, and whether it is conscious does not matter. Ultimately, we want to climb up the right ‘tree’.
Perhaps, in that case, we should look around until we find that right tree, then climb it. But what if there is no ‘right’ tree? In that case, perhaps we should learn how to swing as we walk along to the peaceful clearing, scenic lookout and spectacular waterfall, yet all the while remaining focused on the moment before us.
