“We do not really feel grateful toward those who make our dreams come true; they ruin our dreams.” Eric Hoffer

I read a study once where scientists were experimenting with two groups of rats.

They fed one group as much food as they could eat. They fed the other group just enough so that they were always a bit hungry.

The first group became lazy and lethargic and suffered a whole onslaught of diseases associated with poor health choices.

The second group had more energy, were more productive and lived longer.

Maybe there’s something to always be a bit hungry…

in our careers

in our relationships

in our dreams.

It’s good to have a dream,

a destination

a vision

goals

ambitions.

But maybe it’s more about the journey

The process of getting there

the striving

the passion

the fighting for.

When I get what I want, I’m happy.

But then inevitably 

I begin to miss the dreaming,

the anticipating

the striving to get there.

What do you think?

Which is better…

…the journey or the destination?
