KNOWING WHERE YOU'RE GOING

Remember Alice in Wonderland when she comes up to the fork in the road and asks the Cheshire cat which way to go.

He asks her, "Where are you going?" Then she replies, "I don’t know," at which he replies, "If you don’t know where you are going, what difference does it make which path you take?"

Yogi Berra, the famous New York catcher, once said this about the needs for goals in your life: "If you don’t know where you are going, then how will you know if you got there?"
