Sharing Our Favorite Travel Quotes
Once upon a time, travel was fraught with danger. Still, souls filled with wanderlust ventured out of safe harbor to find distant shores. They set forth on long overland journeys to find what laid beyond the horizon. They traveled – incessantly – because that is what they were born to do.
We know you feel that call, as well. That desire to see iconic landmarks with your own eyes. To walk where your forebears walked, and meet the people of your ancestry. To stretch beyond any one place to be a citizen of the world.
It’s no longer dangerous – usually – to do so, but it is still risky. Do you risk a home life? Do you risk running out of money? Or time? Do you risk getting lost? Do you risk getting hurt?
“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”
That’s the question posed by Randy Komisar, the “Sage of Silicon Valley,” in his book, The Monk and the Riddle: The Art of Creating a Life While Making a Living. It is not a travel book, by any means. It’s a business book that explores entrepreneurship, but just might help you find the means to travel.
In it, Randy talks about having passion and purpose in business. “If you can’t see yourself doing this business for the rest of your life, don’t start it,” is his advice. Essentially, don’t let something you don’t love keep you from doing what you do love. Good advice in business, and on the road. If you haven’t read The Monk and the Riddle, you might consider adding it to your reading list. If interested, you can get it here from Amazon.
