Enjoy The Journey

It isn't the destinaiton that matters. Enjoying the journey is all that counts.

A Change of Trains
If you find your train is not heading where you want, don't struggle with the steering wheel, for trains have none.
Instead you must ride your train to the next station that will allow you to change to a train that is heading the way you want;
or at least one that will take you to other stations where you will eventually be able to board the train going the way you want.
Your journey in life is more similar to riding a train than to driving a car.
The decisions you make place you on a track where it is not easy to change your mind and set out in a new direction at every corner.
Rather, when you decide to change your journey, you must wait until you arrive at a station where you can change trains.
Even then the only train you can board at that station might not be the one that will take you where you want,
but instead to other stations where you may eventually board the right train.
In other words, you can't micromanage your life. Not because there are too many details at that level,
but because the choices you need to make don't exist at that level.
