What’s in a name?

This isn’t my first time at the blog rodeo. My former blog had the title “An Exercise in Futility,” which I liked for a long time. One day, I was reading Amanda Palmer’s blog and her post that day included part of a newsletter that Bob Lefsetz wrote about the Grateful Dead.

One phrase he used — They were on an adventure without a destination.” — really jumped out at me.

I spent the rest of the day thinking about it. I wanted my life to be adventurous. I had learned that I focused too much on destinations and needed to enjoy the journey along the way.

Are you so focused on the result that you miss the joyful moments on the way? What adventure(s) are you on at the moment?

Tell me about it in the comments or link to your own blog.

Regret

I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations – one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it – you will regret both.
