going forward, upward, elsewhere

where do you want to be? tomorrow, next week, next month, ten years from now? does the specific goal matter? or, is just going forward, upward, elsewhere a goal in itself?

some people are born with a personal planner in their soul, one that tells them at any given moment where they are, where they came from and where they should be. there is a laser like focus in their life that pulls them toward something, somewhere. there is a lot to envy and admire about those people.

what if that's something you want, but the drive is just not there? i think most people go through their lives with major and minor goals, and sometimes both are sharp and in clear view and sometimes they lose their way. They find impetus again, or they change direction, or they resume with varying levels of commitment to those old goals. and sometimes, i'm sure, they never regain the drive for "more" again.

a piano drops on your head. a meteor lands in your yard. the proverbial light bulb goes on, bright and vivid. of course you'll recognize your star and chances are, you'll follow it. that's easy. what happens if you're not lucky enough to have an epiphany like that?

forward. upward. elsewhere.

where is my piano?
