Shift Cast #60: Journey versus Destination

(Jindai) We accidentally took two weeks off, sorry folks, but we’re back! :-D

(Jindai) In this episode, we start with a destination in mind, but go far afield, proving Yooper’s point that the journey is just as important as the destination. Love how that works.

(Yooper) I (Yooper) brought up reading a poem that I thought was part of the Homer’s Odyssey, but it turns out to be by Constantine P. Cavafy…(link below)…how to use your destination as a goal, but the real fun is enjoying the journey…
