Today’s Gratitude Burst dealt with knowing what you want. You should not be moving ahead without direction. Walking through life aimlessly benefits no one. Even when you think you know what you want or can rationalize why you are doing what you are doing, you can still be walking aimlessly without knowing it!
I was talking with a friend the other day. He was telling me how much was given up because of ‘Life’. The kids have demands. The spouse has demands. Work has demands. Community Service has demands. Everyone else had wants and needs, and so he was fulfilling them. This was his purpose.
To me, while these are noble tasks, they do not define his goals. It does not outline where he wants to go. He is caught in the routine of ‘Life’.
It does not matter if the goal is a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) or something simpler. The point is that you need to have something to drive you ahead.
For me right now, my goal is to work on the All About Gratitude website and give it a bit of a make over. I am also in the process of producing a few additional resources.
