stop the car

I've just seen this page of south park people animating some philosophy by Alan Watts. The first one of the page seems to offer a solution about some the "what am I doing with my life questions" I've been having - that is, rather than worrying about the end result, we should be concerned with the process of getting there.
Obviously, this is not an endorsement of hedonism, but rather a reminder to myself that, rather than concentrating on the target, I need to be more concerned with what's going around it.
It's a bit like when you're driving through a beautiful part of the country, and you're concentrating so much on the driving that you miss the beautiful scenery. You just need to stop the car and look around to see how magnificent it is.
