Imagine a life in which…

I just talked to a person about what they want to do with their life.  They appear to be off course and adrift.  They need new bearings to get back on track.  I hope this post will speak to you if you feel the same way.

Imagine a life in which an anonymous person decided that you would receive a unique gift.  The gift is that you will never ever have a bill for the rest of your life.  You will receive an average sized house, an average car, and everything else you need to live for free.  A maintenance team will make sure everything you own stays in working order, your yard will be mowed weekly, and your fridge will never go empty.  You will never have to worry about housing, food, transportation, utilities, or insurance again and you will get a reasonable “allowance” to spend each month on entertainment.

Its not a “catch”, but to receive this unique gift you can never work to earn a paycheck again for the rest of your life.  You can get a “job”, start your own business, volunteer, or do whatever you want for work, but you can never be paid for your time or effort.

If this happened to you, what would you do for work?  What would you be willing to do every single day without ever receiving a paycheck?

Seriously think about it and then decide if what you are doing today is consistent with the answer you just gave.  If it isn’t, you may want to look at a course correction and a new set of bearings in your life.

The best way to make a change in your life is to decide where you are and where you want to go.  Once you know where you want to end up, you can create the steps to reach that destination / target.

Have you named your day yet?

Most people think that today is Tuesday.  I disagree.  Correction – I fervently disagree!

You do not need to think of today as “Tuesday.”  Instead, you need to name it.  Today is “I am going to set a PR on that 5k day!”  Today is “I’m going to land that customer at 9:30 am day!”  Today is “I’m going to write that blog and actually publish it day!”  Today is “I’m going to propose to the love of my life day!”  Today is “I’m going to leave work early and head to the park with my kids day!”  Hopefully for some, today is “I’m launching my business today day!”

Today is…

Figure out what today is to you and name it.  Now go out there and make some things happen!

PS – Don’t forget about tomorrow…  It’s not Wednesday, because you have a much better name for it.
