Some people have a goal and they go on towards that goal. They do not go left or go right, they know where they are going and they are determined to be there in time.
These people are clear, they are people with only one self, the goal oriented self.
Some people are less straightforward. They go left or right, take some time to look around. They have an interesting journey. They do not care about identity, about their self being distributed, they go on living. Surprises and unexpected experiences are on their path.
In the end both reach their destiny, and I believe the wandering people did have more fun.
