I am an avid exerciser. I have a Peloton bike and one of the instructors often says that she starts out every ride or race envisioning the finish line. She implores the class to close their eyes and focus on their individual finish lines. The finish line metaphor is something that comes up all the time in our goal-oriented society. As a society and culture, we are constantly seeking to knock down goals and rack up accomplishments . It seems as if we get so obsessed with the goal that the process and the journey don’t really matter as much. They can simply become a means to an end.
