The Wicker Basket

It is great to set big goals.  But beware, they are not what this is about.  This is about the process. This is about you becoming the kind of people who can achieve goals.  The problems with grading ourselves by goal's reached is 1) if we, for whatever reason, don't reach them, we are crushed.  2) we do reach them and they didn't satisfy or we stop trying afterward.  Listen to the story of the boy with the wicker basket today.  He wanted to show immediate and tangible results from his labor. But the results weren't there in that way.  Instead, something else was happening.  Something more important and transformative was happening.  He didn't produce a thing. He fundamentally changed a thing.  And that is a way bigger reason to press on for growth.  Enjoy the process, even more than what you produce, because they process if changing you, and that will make all the difference!
