Meaningless Goals


A farmer had a  dog who used to sit by the roadside waiting for vehicles to come around. As soon as one came he would run down the road, barking and trying to overtake it.

 One day a neighbor asked the farmer "Do you think your dog is ever going to catch a car?" The farmer replied, "That is not what bothers me. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught one." 

Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless goals.

I agree with it. Participating in the rat race in this dog life.

The case is somewhat the opposite with me Manish.I often think of that quote,
"If my life is going too smooth then I must be moving very slow."

I believe that life is fun when it moves at normal pace because then we are able to enjoy our current.
