swissmiss | Happiness is not a Destination

An idea is not a design,
but it is an invitation to a journey.

 

A design is not a prototype,
but it is a plan for moving forward.

 

A prototype is not a program,
but it is a test for your assumptions.

 

A program is not a product,
but it is a milestone towards progress.

 

A product is not a business,
but it is the first fruit of an idea.

 

A business is not profits,
but it is a team behind your back.

 

Profits is not an exit,
but it is validation of your work.

 

And an exit is not happiness,
but happiness is not a destination.

 

Happiness is a journey.
