"If I told you I’ve worked hard to get where I’m at, I’d be lying, because I have no idea where I am right now." ~ Jarod Kintz
I love this quote. I think it goes back to the discussion that
is always going through my head, which is how do I measure success? Am I successful
because of this or that? Have I even gotten to where I want to be yet? That
particular question I think is always no. I’m always striving for more, whether
that is good or bad I don’t know. But, just because I’m not “there” yet…wherever
that place is…does that mean I am not successful.
I think this idea plagues me because I don’t want to feel
like I’m wasting my life. I don’t want to sit idle. I have things I want to
reach for, dreams I want to see achieved. I don’t want to merely exist. If I have
to be in this world, then I want to make a mark. I like the quote because I relate
to it. I am currently working hard, but I rarely acknowledge it. In fact, while
I’ll admit to being a workaholic, I always push aside the comments that I am
doing too much. How much is too much? Surely I can do more. I am not working “hard
enough” because I have no idea where I am on my path. But, on some levels, that
is the fun part….or is it just me?
