“If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.” ~ Proverb
“Only if you know it is the right direction,” You might argue.
If you don’t know whether the direction is right then you know what you don’t know, so start knowing what you should know.
Your destination tells you whether you are walking in the right direction or not. Refer Steven Covey, Habit #2 from The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People book: “Begin with the end in mind.”
The point is to pause and retrospect whether the direction we are taking is the right one in today’s perspective. If yes, keep on walking, if no, align your actions.
In other words: Inspect and adapt. Not very easy in most cases. Still, wiser ones keep doing that for better results.
