Where Are You Going?

'It's not so much where my motivation come from but rather how it manages to survive?' ~ Louise Bourgeois

What are you doing right now, and where do you see yourself in 10 years? It seems like a simple question, but now lets take it one step further, is what you are doing right now going to get you there? If not, what are you doing besides wasting your time?

If I told you that I would pay for you to travel to the one place, in the entire world, that you would like to visit more than anywhere and that all you would have to do is book your travel arrangements, would you do it? It's the same thing - you can be and do anything you want, within reason - I will never be a successful recording artist, but you're not going anywhere unless you start making some plans and book the ticket.

It's easy to picture where you would like to be, and what you would like to be doing. The challenging part is working towards that vision day in and out, and understanding that it's all of the little things that add up to the big things. Life, unfortunately, is not like the movies and not a series of montages - it's real, it's gritty and it's hard work and if you want to get anywhere you need to book the ticket and start packing.
