In a recent conversation with a friend who's a theater actress and director, I complained how I can't ever settle for anything, and how new goals and visions spring up the second a current task is achieved. The second a goal becomes a reality, it's almost like it loses its former importance or impact, and off I go again, chasing another one.
My friend told me off. She said, "it's great to always reach for a bigger goal, but you need to learn to appreciate and enjoy the results, too", Shortly afterwards, I read this article about being average and why it's better to be content than constantly look for something bigger, better, or more inspiring.
I'm not sure I agree. Sure, being grounded and grateful is important. But why stop improving?
