What's Your Journey?

As I mentioned a few weeks ago I like to really reflect this time of year. Did I accomplish what I set out to do this year? What did I learn? What can I do better next year? It isn't always about business either. Lots of my goals are personal ones. I try to always continue to learn, and many times the lessons I learn are more about myself than anything else. Journey 1 30

There is that saying, you know the one. It's not about the destination, it's about the journey. As I think about what I want to focus on this upcoming year, I realize just how true that is. When we are working toward a goal, it is about the journey. Yes, it's great to achieve whatever that goal is that you are reaching for, but ultimately, it's about the journey. What it took to get there, what you learned, what you tried. What worked, what didn't, what you loved, what you disliked. What you would do different next time, and what you are now incorporating in your daily journey.

When I look at art, whether I'm the artist or someone else is, I always see a journey. Of course I appreciate the finished piece, but I always think back about the journey. What it took to make that piece. What lessons were learned, how the style or technique was honed and perfected. How parts of it were repeated over and over again. Art does imitate life. Art is just a condensed version of life. Trial and error. Repeat, practice, exploration. What is that if not a reflection of life? What's going on in your journey?
