As the new year continues to gain momentum, I think this picture is important.
Of course the reality of success is the illustration on the right. At least for me it is. And I believe it's true for everything in life. There should be a third illustration with the arrow going inside the bundle, or even to the beginning. It's easy to give up on a jumble of mess especially when it would be nice to have success in a straight line.
So keep going on your goals for the new year. Our road will not be a straight one. We'll hopefully end up in the same place though!
