The power in a meaningful company doing work that matters is in the people’s will to sustain the pursuit of being better. Nobody can take that away from you besides you.

…is that we risk missing lessons taught by pursuit:
- Goals take us where we want to go, if we focus on making them happen, of course. Disciplined pursuit puts our attention on the horizon.
- But goals take us away from today if we’re not careful to combine them with an appreciation of all that lies between us and that horizon.
- Pursuit has its own rewards–grit, camaraderie, culture, character–that we’ll miss if we don’t savor it (or if we skip it by buying on credit).
Without those rewards, your goals are unlikely to be achieved anyway. They lie between you and the horizon for a reason.
