What do you do? (reprise)

Where are you from?

What do you do? (reprise)

Two safe and typical conference networking questions.

Our attitude drives our thoughts.

Our thoughts drive our behaviors.

Our behavior drives our results and success.

Our success results drive our happiness.

What if we abandoned the safe and typical questions and led with something from this list?:

What’s your favorite color? Why?

Not counting this conference, when was the last time you felt this alive?

What did you come here to find?

Those questions took about 20 seconds to come up with. It’s easy to think creatively when our attitude craves it.

Mid Life Words

Nothing Under Mid Life
Nothing Under Mid Life

Are you getting this? Mid Life Crisis versus Mid Life Celebration.

These are simply mid life words, but the difference between the two sets of words is as profound as the difference here:

  • Hate and Love
  • War and Peace
  • Terrorist and Missionary
  • Dishonest and Honest
  • Criminal and Saint
  • Death and Life
  • Apathy and Passion
  • Crisis and Celebration

Have I told you lately how much joy it brings to know there are others out there who benefit as much from Mid Life Celebration as I do?

Three days away from New Year’s Eve. Got big plans for 2010?
