It always amazes me how many people have no idea why they are doing what they are doing.
In fact recently I went for a ride with a good friend and we talked about how fast time travels these days. “It seems to gain momentum when you get older” was his response.
It got me thinking. Maybe its not age, it’s about busyness. The busier we get, the faster time moves. I often think we just do things out of courtesy, rather than using the question “Why?”. Why am I doing this?
How is this activity going to help me towards my goals? Why should I have goals anyway? If I’m not clear about my own goals & direction, its likely that I will just become a “yes” person.
Here’s a few interesting “Why” questions:
- Why do I work in the job I have?
- Why do I have the friends that I have?
- Why haven’t I just dropped everything and headed off into the sunset doing what I REALLY want to do?
Life is rather short isn’t it??
This guy challenged me with the “Why” question and maybe I can challenge you too.
