In a lifetime of many, many independent choices, small and large, a career with a vision will get you a distance proportional to n, while no vision will get you only the distance √n. In a sense, the main difference between those who go far and those who do not is some people have a vision and the others do not and therefore can only react to the current events as they happen.
— Richard Hamming

Aimless wandering in this sense is a problem. Intentional 'aimless wandering', sauntering is another story.

Solitude is being with immediate experience. A sense of meaning comes from acting with intention. Sauntering with the intention to be present with the immediate experience.

Hope you have an awesome day!
