“Beware of destination addiction – a preoccupation with the idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job, and with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are.”
– Robert Holden

Now here is a concept that has finally found its best name: “destination addiction.” We’ve all observed “destination addiction” in others, especially at work, who seem overly focused on the next promotion, raise, bonus, title or other career step. They are those who are competing with others while the real winners are those competing with themselves. The truth is that promotions, raises and better bonuses are given to those who seek self-improvement, self-efficiency and self-productivity rather than those who chase self-promotion. Sure, a little self-promotion can’t hurt, but it’s “what you sell” that really counts. The next job won’t make you happy, or happy for long, if you’re not engaged, challenged and eager to achieve in this one.
