Another rainy Saturday in Charlotte. I decided to venture up to the top of our building for some reading and writing. Nary a soul takes advantage of this space. It’s baffling.
Also along for the ride is a great new book from Elizabeth Gilbert titled The Last American Man. Check it out.
AND NOW, OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM
Observing those around me, it seems we are so busy working on our careers and satisfying our bosses that we are not working on a satisfying life.
Designing a life worth living takes work.
Often, especially when you’ve been taught from a very young age what a “successful life” should look like, it takes time away from the day to day to truly reflect.
When is the last time you took a moment to evaluate your life and what is really important to you?
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the daily grind. Next thing you know 30 years have passed and all of the shoulds that never turned into musts have piled up like items in your junk drawer.
Will you be able to empty that drawer once you retire? If you are lucky enough to make it…healthfully…to that age? The proverbial “someday”?
When would NOW be a good time to start re-evaluating your priorities? When would NOW be a good time to determine what really inspires you and start moving in that direction, however small those first steps may be?
Do you want to get to the end of your life having should all over yourself?
Do you want to get to the end of your life and say, “What if my whole life has been wrong?”
See you on the journey.
