It's the process, not the goal. The process is the goal. It doesn't matter if you reach the goal; what matters is the process.
Three people told me the same thing on one day.
I noticed the first time. I mentioned that it was the second time. I laughed the third time.
It's not like it's the first time I've heard it in my life, but to hear it three times in one day is pretty great, and the third time I was sitting in Marcy's back yard, with Marcy, which is a joy all unto itself.
So do you think maybe it's the process, and not the goal?
