Do You Have a Goal?
Last week I talked with a friend about her goal. As have I, she has passed the time in life that is generally associated with the kind of ambition that requires physical fitness and exertion. Nevertheless, she recently achieved her goal which was to ride (successfully) a first class horse over big jumps. I have a goal to earn my black belt in Taekwondo. My friend and I agreed that pursuing such goals is consuming and that as you approach success each effort is electrifying. The pounding heart, adrenalin surge, fear and release of a physical challenge are hard to beat for sheer joy. This is surely the reason why President Bush the elder still jumps out of airplanes.
