I think ambition and growth is a trifle over-rated!
Ambition gives you a target to achieve in a certain timeframe.
What happens if someone is more interested in the journey than the destination - that's ok too.
Some trips are well planned. The luggage all neated packed, the luxurient hotels booked, the flights confirmed, iternary put down to the last minute. It is fun!
And yet, who can deny the fun in an unplanned trip, the stopover at the road-side dhaba for a quiet bite, the dipped feet in the un-named stream and the sudden detour. Is this trip any less meaningful! any less fun!
