We made it
Muse #345 - such short goals
There is a theme that I noticed in some of the 2022 new year wishes. Several said, “We made it”. I can understand. With things like the pandemic around, it seems like we would not have made it. But, that might be short-term thinking, because in spite of the risk most would have made it to 2022 anyway. We as humans most likely are extrapolating the risks beyond what they truly are. Such is our design and such are our biases.
It is surprising to me that just getting to 2022 is a destination. Life is a journey. If one truly values a milestone as a destination, then why wouldn’t we ask ourselves the same questions each day. What is special in a milestone year marker? Is not every day as special and valuable as the one before it and the one after it? Something to think about.
