Knowing Where You Are Going

Albert Einstein was on a train coming to New York City but couldn't find his ticket.

As the brilliant scientist frantically searched for his ticket, the train's conductor recognized him and assured Einstein it would not be necessary for him to find his ticket. Continuing to search, however, Einstein told the conductor, 'This is not an issue of trust, but of direction. Without that ticket, I have no idea where I am going.'

Graham asked his audience if they were like Einstein, not knowing where they are going. He concluded by asking, "In the future, when you hear my name, would you give thought to your own final destination?"
