I commute to New York City.
Turnpike. Congested city traffic. 1010 WINS. Waze. Hidden police radar.
I don’t like traffic delays and irritations so I think of my students who will bring their fresh faces and tons of optimism to class as my reward.
The destination is worth much more than what it takes to get there.
Obsessing over impediments ruins everything.
Seeing the reward in your mind’s eye helps deal with the irritations of getting there.
Anticipating the reward in life makes the journey more bearable.
