Do You Have An Unconventional Goal?

Yesterday on the flight to Seattle from Orlando, I chatted with a delightful young woman. She and her husband have been married for over four decades.

We talked about life’s big choices and finding a purpose. It was interesting to hear her say she was still uncertain.

My big, unconventional goal in life is to become the kind of person my Dog thinks I am.

What’s yours?

Knowing I’d be working long hours today, today is a planned day of active rest.

Mid Life Workaholics Unite

“Opera is when a guy gets stabbed in the back and, instead of bleeding, he sings”.Ed Gardner

Workaholics rarely have courage for self-confrontation.  We’re too busy trying to control things and control life.  If we pause long enough to notice the bleeding, we might have to change who we are.

Panic attack, right?  When will we take time to:

  • Rethink
  • Reprioritize
  • Recommit

Probably never.  Am I wrong?

Or maybe when the phone rings, “Honey, it’s for you, it’s your wake up call”.
