To What End?

I love Steven Covey’s story about the man who is climbing like mad. Climbing, climbing, climbing with vigor and strength and skill. Tired sometimes and energized at others. And then, finally, he reaches the top only to find that his ladder is against the wrong wall! Ouch. So often we forget to ask, what are we climbing for? Where are we going? What’s the goal? To what end are all our efforts taking us? I don’t want to get to the end and realize I was on the wrong wall, or worse, I never stopped to ask “to what end?” [Photo of Kat in Ocoee Tennessee “on the wall” by Spencer — my climbing partner for life!]
