The Journey is The Reward
Steve Jobs: The Journey Is the Reward

This is one of the best biographies I have read. The more I read about Steve Jobs the more this person fascinates me. The mention of the journey rather than the destination being the reward is one of many such Paradigm Shifts that he has come up with. As I think about it, the pieces seem to fit perfectly like stranded parts of a JIGSAW Puzzle. Soon the haze clears up and the picture comes out clear and beautiful.
We don’t need to look too far to be able to appreciate this; how many times have we undertaken an arduous and strenuous excursion, to reach a destination which finally turns out to be a dampener! Even if it doesn’t turn out that way, quite often we feel a VOID on reaching the peak, whereas what we would have expected was ecstasy.
The simple fact that, it was the pursuit which was thrilling and ADRENALISING eludes us. Do ponder a bit on this and it will soon become clear that the more challenging and arduous journey it becomes the more will be the “KICK” it would give on culmination. What aroma of blood spilt and sweat drench, what luminosity in a dark room and what joy in a sorrowful world, what karma in a material world !
All a virtue of the journey. It is this very fact that makes this proverb stand, “There are no shortcuts to Success”. The path being the quintessence of success, can never be bypassed or cut In shape!
