Knowing What You Want

“Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it.”

It is important to occasionally sit back and reflect on how you are living your life and how and with whom you are spending your time.  The speed of today’s life and the increasing demands on our time can easily create a situation where we can go for months or even years without authentically and critically assessing if what we are working so hard at is something that is aligned with what we really want and with what nurtures us.  Spend a little time today to think about this in your own life, and regardless of your conclusions, also schedule your next “appointment” with yourself no more than 4 months later to start a habit of regular reflection to ensure all your hard efforts remain aligned with your purpose and goals.
