Where are we going? How will we get there?

When I’m looking for guidance on a decision, I often turn to the great 19th century scholar Charles Dodgson, who wrote on mathematical logic. His two greatest treatises on that subject were written under the pen name Lewis Carroll: Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
Near the beginning of the first treatise, after Alice has fallen down the long rabbit hole and emerged in Wonderland, she has no idea where she is and has the following exchange with the Cheshire Cat:
Alice: ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
The Cheshire Cat: ‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.’
Alice: ‘I don't much care where.’
The Cheshire Cat: ‘Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.’
Alice: ‘...So long as I get somewhere.’
The Cheshire Cat: ‘Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.’
