“We had gone nowhere at all”

Listening to Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life this morning (while exercising), I was hit by the punchline of an experience he shared. As a teenager, he convinced small-town friends to travel with him to Edmonton, 800 miles away.

We spent the weekend drinking in the hotel room. Although we had travelled a long distance, we had gone nowhere at all.

(Emphasis mine.)

How sad. How true in our own lives?
