“We find our way by getting lost. Anything other than that is called reading a map.”
– Seth Godin
I went for a walk recently with no path planned out. Just deciding to follow whatever caught my fancy. It ended up being a wonderful walk with lovely views, but I was also prepared for it to not be very exciting at the outset. It was all about, on that day, finding the path that was right for that moment without prescribing in advance what that would be. About being ok with maybe getting a bit lost and then finding my way back.
This quote, of course, isn’t just about literal paths. It’s also about finding your trajectory in life, in work, in relationships.
I wish you good cheer in getting lost, and I’ll be right there with you.
