Three Minute Leadership: On the Joy of Walking

To:  The Great leaders Who Have a Passion for Continuous Learning


In his recent blog post, How to Walk, Dan Rockwell reminds us of the joys of walking: to rekindle our spirit, dream new dreams, enjoy the peace of self-reflection or connecting with someone dear. Quoting Gwyn Thomas, novelist, he writes: “But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.” So it is with our magnificent walk through life… the joy is in the journey. Yet, there is the reality of the demands of our days which tug on our attention to achieve our goals and life’s purpose. So we must find balance.


Fill your life with magical moments of wonder, great dreams and achievements.  Be that magnificent value-added change to the world and all those whom you touch. Along the way, capture the beauty of each precious moment.  See the world through the eyes of a child. As Rockwell reminds us: “Grownups say, “come on.” But, children know how to walk. They forget where they’re going. Children say, ‘Look! A dead worm! Isn’t this rock pretty? Why is the sidewalk cracked?’”  Enjoy those small, everyday treasures that make life even more wondrous and beautiful. John Muir, naturalist and author, wrote: “I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” This is one of life’s greatest joys.


Have a beautiful day, a magnificent week and a peaceful and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
