“There’s a story in the Torah about twelve spies who are sent out from the desert to investigate the land of Canaan.  They complete their mission and are entranced by what they find.  The land, as the saying goes, is flowing in milk and honey…

The report goes on to say that, in addition to the milk and honey there are giants and fortified cities.  Life in the desert isn’t much fun, but getting to Canaan could be dangerous.  Ten of the twelve spies end their consulting report with an ominous recommendation: Moving into the promised land is just too difficult.  Better to play it safe and not fight for the land of our dreams.” – Chris Guillebeau, The Happiness Of Pursuit

In The Happiness of Pursuit, the story of the twelve spies concludes that the possibility of danger prevents conquering the land “flowing in milk and honey” for another 40 years.  Four decades later, the two dissenting spies are the only remaining of the original 12 when the journey resumes to pursue the milk and honey.  The giants are still giant and fortified cities still fortified.  The only remedy to the situation-- embrace the struggle as opportunity.
