Travel advice

if you do not change direction,
you will end up
where you are going. - Lao Tzu

Thank you to Kate Knapp of Twigseeds who features this quote on her inspirational cards.

I have been reflecting on this quote today, wondering whether I am interpreting it the correct way.  It seems to me that it is reassuring one that either choice will be fine, so relax -- either you change direction and perhaps end up in a better place, or maintain your course and you'll end up in a good place anyway...

Or is it suggesting that if you feel like you are headed in a negative direction, you will likely end up in a negative place?  I do think it is giving one the courage to accept that only you can chart your direction. 

I think it struck a chord because we spend a lot of time asking ourselves whether we are making the right decisions in terms of what is an "environmentally friendly" product and what we need to do to grow a sustainable, ethical and viable business.  For example, with palm oil, so many discussions and points of view.   The planet certainly needs those who are prepared to change the direction...
