A bridge well-crossed gets better over time.” This line and rest of the post by Seth Godin touched my heart, to say the least.
Very often, we are so focussed on the goal, we miss the journey. We even miss the need to be aware of the journey. The tragedy is when we promote the virtue of reaching the goal. More so in corporate world :(( It may not be just worth it. Think of it…
I just checked the dictionary meaning of burn one’s bridge (behind one)
1.Lit. to cutoff the way back to where you came from, making it impossible to retreat.
The army, which had burned its bridges behind it, couldn’t go back.
By blowing up the road, the spies had burned their bridges behind them.
2.Fig.to act unpleasantly in a situation that you are leaving, ensuring that you’ll never be welcome to return. If you get madand quit your job, you’ll be burning your bridges behind you.No sense burning your bridges. Be polite and leave quietly.
3.Fig. to make decisions that cannot be changed in the future.If you drop out of school now, you’ll be burning your bridges behind you.You’re too young to burn your bridges that way.
