The Thinking Behind The Tweet
"A person with clear purpose will make progress even on the roughest road. A person with no purpose will make no progress even on the smoothest road."
Thomas Carlyle, Scottish philosopher (1795-1881)
When I think about this I wonder if it would be better said - A person with clear purpose makes progress despite the roughness of the road.
Then I wonder if it should be - A person with clear purpose will make progress because of the roughness of the road.
The smoother the road the less likely you will reach your long-term destination.
The smoother the road the less likely you will know or achieve your long-term purpose.
Let's not stumble along purposeless roads...let's construct better paths.
