Benjamin Franklin said, “If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.”
I love email marketing and my enthusiasm has taken me off on different tangents over the years. Tangents that appear to head in the same direction as my goals. Yet in reality have pulled me off the path of my own goals.
That means I have had some interesting experiences however on the odd melancholic occasion I wonder if I could have got to where I wanted to be a bit faster.
Reason can be a kill joy, and you might miss some great experiences, but it can also help you to where you want to go faster.
