destination unknown

I read this on a friend's Gtalk status recently.

A person has three choices in life. You can swim against the tide and get exhausted, or you can tread water and let the tide sweep you away, or you can swim with the tide, and let it take you where it wants you to go

I smiled and thought - maybe I should go tell someone what I think about that and so here I'm. Who has a choice in life? Do you get to swim across life if you want to face it like that? What happens if life was a piece of cake - would you still wade into it just cause you want to swim against the tide?

1) you swim against the tide
2) you let the tide take you where it wants
3) you swim with the tide - (which whether you do or not you are going to be taken with the tide)

One doesn't get three choices - There is one way - and the end result is all the same - destination unknown.

Whatever the choice - working hard, or otherwise doesn't guarantee anything.

We hear in news everyday about people who have worked really hard and still got nothing they expected, and about people who got a lot without even lifting a finger.

So what should we do? A simple answer is that we should just enjoy whatever we're doing right now and only do the things that we're really passionate about.

It may or may not lead to success but It's certainly worth the time and effort spent.

Based on this, you can either swim against the tide, with the tide, let it carry you or just use a submarine.
