'Life is a journey, not a destination.'
Ralph Waldo Emmerson
Except isn't reaching the destination the whole point of this exercise? Well, yes. And, no. I term it a journey as it is a process that is best undertaken with a spirit of adventure and an open mind. It may include bumpy paths, low hanging foliage, the odd, unexpected detour and is best undertaken with people you like, trust and can communicate well with. The ability to have a good laugh doesn't hurt either!
