Back To The Midlife Antidote

What Will You See When You Look Back?
What Will You See When You Look Back?

Every day it’s the same.  Isn’t it?  It goes like this:

  • No Passion
  • No Drive
  • No Worthy Goals
  • No Desire
  • No Patience
  • No Resolve

So there you have it, the antidote.

It’s yours for the taking.

But you don’t.

Have I not done enough to make you angry motivate you to begin to Rethink, Reprioritize, and Recommit?

What else do you want from me?

You’ve got to be willing to kick your own butt.

Are you listening?

You’ve got to!!

Same Thing Different Words

Ever heard someone say what you say, but in a different way?

How’d it feel?

Some might feel threatened, because they thought their thoughts were original.

Some rejoice because it validates their thinking and belief system.

For me, it’s the latter.

Click here to go to Brian K. Rice, and his LeadershipConnextions blog. Brian quotes some of Gail Sheehy’s thoughts on Mid Life.

The purpose here today is simple – provide you with links, offering the same thing using different words.

PS. Tomorrow, we’ll revisit yesterday’s question.

Honey, It's For You

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”.

New Year’s Resolution

Play more games, more often, with our son.

PS. I do a decent job already, probably more than what might be considered typical, in today’s busy world.
