I’m getting ready for a trip to Vietnam this weekend.
I was asked by the coach for the Vietnam memory team to come out and give a few talks to his students.
I’ve never been to Vietnam before (but I’ve seen a lot of Southeast Asia), so if you have recommendations I’d love to hear them (reply to this email).
Today, I wanted to give you a quick reminder that I always have to give myself:
“Enjoy the journey”
I’m a very ambitious person. I have goals for how much money I want to be making, training goals for memory events, goals and dreams of traveling the world, etc.
I think to myself that “you’re not there yet.”
I have this picture in my mind of where I want to be…
and all I can think of is “you’re not there yet.”
I have to take a step back and realize where I’m at in my life. Like, right now. Today.
I’m on a journey.
Today, I’m working on my goals.
I’m getting better today. I’ll get better tomorrow.
Someday, I’ll be “there”.
Actually. I don’t think I’ll ever make it “there.”
I’ll always want to improve more. To see more. To do more. To live more.
Heck, all I wanted was to win the 2018 USA Memory Championship for a while. Then I did it. Now I want more…
My point in all of this is to “enjoy the journey.”
Enjoy where you are right now.
Don’t get stuck thinking “you’re not there yet”.
Enjoy the things you’re doing right now, today.
The future is unknown.
You can be ambitious and have huge goals.
But ground yourself in today. Make today count.
Live the ups and downs of life.
Be grateful for where you are now.
The journey is where it’s at.
