“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu
What makes a good traveler? Is it the ability to craft a detailed, point-by-point itinerary and keep everyone on schedule? Or is it the flexibility to take what life throws you and “embrace the detours”?
On the road, as in life, there are only so many things you can control, but so many things you cannot. You can make yourself (and others) crazy trying to keep everything according to plan. Which is why, detailed itinerary or not, a good traveler has no fixed plans. Everything is fluid. It’s another way of saying, “Go with the flow.” Explore every moment. Don’t be intent on arriving, but take a good look at where you’ve ended up. You may not have gone where you intended, but you may be right where you need to be.
