Thomas Slatin Quote On Society And Goals

Thomas Slatin

    That feeling of quiet pleasure or security, often while unaware of some potential danger, smug satisfaction leads to end game we might no want. I love this quote, just unique

    The end game should be our focus, it matters. I also think we shouldn’t quit trying, failure doesn’t mean the end but gives more reason to try new things until we succeed.

    Well, like they say the end justifies the means, I think this is what we delight in most, the end products not all the struggles we went through.

    This is sadly the harsh truth. Nobody really cares how one got there, as long as you provide them with the end results that they are always so fixated upon. This also leads us to being blind to everything that is involved with the journey, just as long as we give others the success that they want.

    The route we take to get to the end result is just as important as the end result. If anything, the two are actually mutually exclusive.

    Fantastic sentiment on appreciating the now and living in the moment. The end goal is great, but when you sit and reflect on what brought you there, good and bad, you will reach a total state of admiration.
