The donut and the hole

“As you wander on through life
brother,
Whatever be your goal,
Keep your eye upon
the donut,
And not upon
the hole.”

How many times over the past fifty years have I forgotten to follow that advice. I managed to make the most of some opportunities that came my way. In spite of my early conditioning, I have become very happy and successful. I guess others have forgotten to follow that advice more than I. But had I followed the advice, I would not have gotten lost. I surely would have saved many years of pain, precious time, and energy.
