This is the most important question you can ask yourself.
It defines the finish line. It provides a benchmark to measure the results. It gives you a way to make sense of the data and feel fulfilled when you get there.
Goals that do not align with your values will not succeed, because you are fighting against yourself.
Take a moment to experience what is happening around you. Stop running through your day. Focus on this moment.
When you are running, you can't see what is all around you. Your focus is on moving forward, not observing or engaging.
We are not built to run all the time. We need to press pause.
When we stop, we realize things we would have missed otherwise.
My realizations for pressing pause today is: Simple is remarkable. Well design spaces make you feel better. Observing others gives you perspective about yourself.
We are not remembered for what we intended to do. We are remembered because of what we did and who we impacted in our life.
When we quit something, we free up our most valuable resource, our time. If we continue to do things simply because we started them, then we are wasting significant parts of our life on things we know are not good for us.
All great ideas come from somewhere. They have an origin.
You can trace the path back to a specific moment or a series of moments that started it all. It is the moment when things came together in such a way that made starting the business, creating the project, or launching the idea happen. This is the origin story.
