In my opinion, the best sacrifices I could offer up in pursuit of a goal are:  time, effort, and the most honest assessment of obstacles/methodology I’m capable of mustering.  

If you do all that knowing that success isn’t guaranteed, I’d argue that you’ve demonstrated the vaunted quality known as “detachment.”

  2. There should be an icon for puzzled. Does detachment give one a better perspective and broader understanding? Nothing in life is guaranteed, which makes life all the more interesting. This Musing made me think. Thanks for posting.

    • I believe it does. If you want a proponent of detachment under harsh conditions, I believe SEAL commander Jocko Wilink can articulate the reasons why detachment is preferable to simply following emotions or instincts. I believe detachment allows one to act in the most efficient manner possible, given what information is available at the time. To me, this is an invaluable asset.
