“If a steamship lost its rudder in mid-ocean and began circling around, it would soon exhaust its fuel supply without reaching shore, despite the fact that it would use up enough energy to carry it to shore and back several times. The man who labors without a definite purpose that is backed up by a definite plan for its attainment resembles the ship that has lost its rudder.
Hard labor and good intentions are not sufficient to carry a man through to success, for how may a man (or woman) be sure that he has attained success unless he has established in his mind some definite object that he wishes?”
If you’re not clear on where you really want to go, you may end up being very busy but not getting anywhere! You may also get frustrated, exhausted and burnt out.
