I really like much of what Jonny Bowden says. I was poking around on his blog today and found this quote. How incredibly true!
“When you drive your vehicle from place to place, you have an awareness of your starting place as well as an awareness of where you are going. You accept that you cannot get there instantaneously; you accept that you will travel the distance, and in time, you will arrive at your destination. And while you may feel anxious to get there, and maybe even tire of the journey, you do not get so discouraged at the midway mark that you just turn around and go back to your starting place. You do not drive back and forth and back and forth from your starting point to the midway point and then finally collapse from the never-ending journey.”

I had originally been looking for this:
The Bowden Equation: Unhappiness is only equal to the the difference between Expectation and Reality.
I really wanted to post this so I can go back and read it now and then…
