If the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line…

I’ve often thought that if you look back through the history of my blog, how would you describe it? With categories like 30 day challenge, Development, Low-carb diets and Photos – probably the kindest thing you could say is that I am a frustrated entrepreneur who doesn’t know what he wants.

I’ve signed up for the #Trust30. This is described as:

To celebrate Emerson’s 208th birthday, The Domino Project is republishing a work of art that’s especially relevant today. Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson urges readers to trust their intuition rather than conforming to the will of the majority.

Sign up, and you get a daily warm fuzzy inspirational message. Funnily enough, today’s message really made me stop and think:

If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays
By Liz Bobulate:

I often notice that I beat myself up. I kick myself when I find myself off track (what track that might be at the moment…).

But on reflection, if the best (insert noun – ship, space craft, person) takes a path that is never straight, why would I be any different?

Thanks Liz!

Rock on,
Christian

  1. I’ve never heard that one. I tend toward the ‘Captain of my ship’ approach, needing a map and all. I have difficulty being unfocused. There are those occasional relaxing days when I let happen what will… and then it’s back to work.
