"For an outcome to truly matter, for it to have deep value in our lives, we have to be in control of the actions that get us there. We have to be the one steering the ship—the one deciding which way to tack and when, and how much reach to give the sails. If we simply let ourselves drift toward happiness or fulfillment, or any other goal—or if we let others determine the route that will get us there or what the goal itself will be—we have lost control of our journey and can never fully enjoy or even, at a subconscious level, embrace the outcome."

-- "The Leap" by Rick Smith, pages 173-4
