You’re trying to get somewhere. But you’re not there yet.
That is frustrating. And worse, it’s embarrassing. You’ve worked hard. You’ve traveled far. And you think: I should be there by now — so why am I not?
I feel this too, and I’ve concluded that it isn’t just about anxiety or impatience. It’s about something more fundamental: This is what happens when we are on a path, and what’s ahead is unseeable.
