Tagline importance

The paradox of mid life crisis.

How you think drives how you act.

Some think boldly yet never launch.

We hear their boldness.

But we see their cowardice.

They have conflicting, competing thinking.

In the end, their constant internal, private narrative lets fear consistently win.

This used to be me.

How we thinketh drives how we acteth.

Tagline importance?

Your midlife triangle

Busy intersection near Walt Disney World
Yesterday at 7:15am.


It’s a chronic situation.

At least it was for me.

When will we get our proverbial sh!t together?

Probably never.

Unless we embrace this deceptively simple framework.

Your midlife triangle is made up of three sides.

  1. rethink
  2. reprioritize
  3. recommit

It’s that simple and it’s that’s difficult.

As we rode bikes to school yesterday we crossed three major intersections near Walt Disney World. It was morning rush hour.

Told our son that most drivers are so distracted because they’re in a such a hurry that it’s the equivalent to being drunk.

The past two days have each netted me almost getting hit by a harried driver when we have had the right of way to cross the cross walk.

Midlife crisis is spending our life chasing our dreams and finally getting there, more or less

Sooner or later it becomes crystal clear. Life is not a dress rehearsal.

There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do.
– Freya Stark

Midlife crisis is spending our life chasing our dreams and finally getting there, more or less.

But in looking around, we think, “This isn’t what I wanted!”

Deep breath. Exhale… Remember all those things we promised ourselves when we were younger?

We should do them. But when?

Our biggest midlife challenge isn’t desire.

It’s time.

Finding time to… Pause.

Time to simply breath in and, maybe, actually, to take back…

Take back a little time to do something for ourselves that’s long overdue.

To… well… quite literally…

To re-shuffle our deck so to speak.
