"Not all those who wander are lost"

JRR Tolkein

The received wisdom encourages us to know where we are going. To have goals and targets and things we achieve. Most coaches sell their services on the basis of helping you to get to where you want to be.

I find myself asking what we lose when we stop wandering. We can wander through all kinds of things. Physical places. Emotional places. Our own interior landscapes.

Perhaps there's a value in allowing ourselves to wander ( not get lost ) without an end goal.
