It’s not the final destiny, but the process.

Yesterday was my son’s graduation from 9th grade. (In Mexico, Middle School  grades are 7th,8th,9th and High School grades 10th,11th, 12th) He will be starting High school in August and still has a way to go…

On the same day, curiously, I was finishing one of my MBA clases, Corporate Finance, and still have way to go…

So It came to my thinking that once you finish a grade, or reach an objective it is definitely not the end of the journey, or the final destination. It is not about getting to where you are heading, it is about the process, the way of getting there. Did you enjoy it? where you concerned or worried? Was there challenge, obstacles? Did you figure out how to go through them? How did you do it?

It seems that the attitude, the way one decides to go along the way is most important than the goal itself, because at the end one is going to get there and one has to refrain from  saying: “Now What”?

See? There is no final destination, it is about the process of getting there and not necessarily being there.

Well, my thinking so far.

  1. that’s a room full of happy lovely women! are they celebrating your son’s graduation?!!!!!
    you’re right – it’s not the destination but the trail that takes us there! we often veer off on unexpected directions that reward us with new options.
    your class looks like a nice group of interesting people! congratulations to your son and to you.. whew. one door closed and another opens!

  2. Sabias palabras, tienes razon!!! cuando llegamos a la etapa final de algo llega la incertidumbre de no saber que sigue despues y nos olvidamos de disfrutar al maximo el camino que nos llevó hasta allí.

  3. Enhorabuena a los dos!! y recuerda: “caminante no hay camino, se hace camino al andar…caminante, son tus huellas, el camino y nada más…” (A. Machado) Un gran abrazo Cedric 😉

  4. Yes, we are never “done” until, well, we’re dead. (And even then, some people will claim we still aren’t done…) So better to do our best to enjoy the entire process, not just the end. (Or the new beginning…)

    Which one are you in the group photo?

    1. Plaided and glassed! Actually, I didn’t know what “plaid” mean. I had to look it up in the dictionary. Thank you for the new addition to my vocabulary!…. and the rest, even better. 🙂 hahaha!

  5. You set a great example for your children by continuing with higher education. Our journey definitely continues as we work toward each one…you remind us to check & balance our attitude during the goal process. Thanks! 😊
