I like Steve Jobs’ quote: The journey is the reward.
To keep the journey moving with great energy, I daily use the Negotiation Technology lesson how to “wrap” a negative opinion or feedback into positive so that the other party would not freeze into defense. If you barely bring out the negative, then others will withdraw and sit in trenches… and there will be no journey!
