My company had our annual year end dinner some time ago at SRC. After the dinner, I decided to walk to Little India to take the NEL back to SengKang. Somehow, I just kept walking.
After 3 hours of walking, I had walked past Boon Keng MRT, made a turn to the right and walked along the river, ending up on the outskirts of Geylang. I was thinking of staying out till 4am to catch a Manchester United game but decided against it after realizing that I would probably die at work the next day if I did.
There is something about walking without a destination in mind. It gives the illusion that you are going somewhere even though what is really happening is you are just going further away from the starting point (actually, that’s not even always the case, but you get the idea… I hope).
Lots of activity, without any deliberate purposeful action.
Somehow, I don’t think ‘Keep Walking’ is a good thing. By itself.
Is each day in our life, as we commute to work, slave away at our offices, rush home to be with our family, just another step in a meaningless walk to nowhere, or is it deliberate purposeful strides towards our goals and dreams?
