Every day you spend drifting away from your goals is a waste not only of that day, but also of the additional day it takes to regain lost ground.
I have joined a group called Illustration Friday on Flickr, last weeks subject was called Adrift, and I have been a bit adrift myself, days taken up visiting a garage, the police station, and our Insurance shop, several times!!! But I must put that all behind me and move onwards.
The French word for adrift is dérive
Goal in French is but sounds like BOO, note that there are muliple entries for but!
