The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.

in the pursuit of a life dream.

Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
