On a trip to Washington DC, I noticed this group of sailors walking up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with a sense of purpose. I could see this with the pace they were walking at and they way they were speaking to one another. Clearly their destination had lot to do with it, as did their proximity to their goal for the morning.
Once inside, what had started as animated conversations quickly turned to hushed voices, combined with thoughtful reflection. Their short journey up the stairs was complete and they could now fully take in and appreciate the moment in front of them.
A few thoughts on the importance of knowing your way every day:
Know your purpose, you’ll know what direction to head in and WHY
When you know your WHY, you’ll know your WAY
A plan will put you on the right path
You’ll spend less time waiting and more time doing
As the baseball sage Yogi Berra once said:
“If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up somewhere else!”
Do you know where you are going and how you’re going to get there?
