That’s gonna leave a mark…

October 25, 2009

Leaving the office late on Friday night I realized: I’m on a path to nowhere.


Much like the main hallway after 5PM on a Friday, it seems my career is drifting into the abyss.  Sure I surround myself with extremely talented and intelligent people who lend me their expertise and guidance on a daily basis – that’s not the problem.  The problem is “the ladder”.  I find myself clinging to a rung that I’m not sure I’ll ever have the opportunity to pull up from.  Being a classic overachiever, this frustrates me and causes a restlessness that I wish I knew how to tame.  But I don’t.  I probably never will.  For some reasons, that’s a good thing – but for others, it’s a curse.

For me: it’s not about the destination, it’s about getting there.

*I heard this song while driving to the store last weekend and realized it spoke directly to how I approach just about everything I do in life.  Try to look past the “Miley Cyrusness” of it and really listen to the words.  I’d bet there are many more of you out there who will relate to this message than won’t.  It’s ok.  We won’t tease you for singing along with Cyrus.
