Offbeat, except in normal life.
Shaken, not in rage to be stirred.
A contrarian, narrowed into a consensus view.
Constant surprises, a search for settlement.
Ludicrous ambition, tolerable mediocrity.
Finally a new year, with more conviction this time.
Writes Gary Lachlan in The Caretakers of the Cosmos: “Without goals, without some purposeful anticipation, we live, Frankl said, only a ‘provisional existence’, a kind of marking time which is really a death in life.”
In the game of goal setting, all beliefs are gambles.
