Hard work does not equal quality work is the thesis of the article. Is the joy in the journey or is it in the destination? I would submit that the joy MUST be in the journey for the destination is not always reached. Also, if the focus is solely on the destination, then you are merely using everything and everyone else a means to an end. That in my mind is manipulation and a difficult way to live long term.
Why not enjoy today as a destination in itself? Why not see life as a group of steps instead of a cliff you must jump off?
