What do you want?
When I talk with people this is a question I often ask.
I took some time to ask myself that question today.
I got an answer that pointed back to a simpler time.
Life is not so complicated.
It’s easy to get caught up in the flavor of the month.
Fear of missing out can lead to chasing shiny objects that once caught vanish.
Chasing shiny objects has made be blind to what I want.
There’s a concept I talk about called the Ideal Life.
An Ideal life is attainable much quicker than most people realize.
I’ve lived my ideal life at various points in my life.
Then something happened and I started to chase something that wasn’t ideal.
That’s when I got off track.
Now I’m getting back on track and spending the time to compare my ideal life with where I am now.
There is a gap between where I am now and where I want to be.
The first step is to describe both places.
- My ideal life
- My current life
Once I have an accurate picture of each place, I’m able to make steps consistently to bring my current life closer to my ideal life.
