You have answered your two questions, and if the answers are a little sketchy that’s ok. Remember they are not chiseled in stone.
Our lives change rapidly, more rapidly than we think they do. It is always a good idea when you are in a rut to answer these types of questions. Sometimes it’s a good idea to imagine yourself in a time machine choosing between past, present and future.
The past is only useful to remember lessons learned. Don’t dwell in the past.
The present is good so that we can recognize that our interests have changed.
The future is really important so that we can focus our present to get us to the future we desire, not the one that “just happens.
Now we are going to ask some questions about the present and then jump in a time machine.
First set of questions today:
What do you love to do?
What are your passions?
Today we are going to take a trip forward.
And ask more questions.
Close your eyes and picture your life as you want to be living it in the future. Think of your why, your health, you faith, finances. Every aspect of our life. Where do you want to be?
Where do you want to be in 1 year?
Where do you want to be in 3 years?
Where do you want to be in 5 years?
At the end of your life, what do you want to be remembered for?
Write it all down. Put it away. Sleep on it.
Here’s something to keep in mind as you ponder the questions:
“Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.”
― Ray Bradbury
