Sailors use charts to figure out where it is they want to go. And for most of us, life can feel like navigation. Trying to get through the day with as little inconvenience or pain as possible. Finding the easy path through challenges. Getting from Point A to Point B as fast as possible.
The problem is, this isn’t the only way to live our life. After all, when our time is up, we all end up in the same place. Instead of trying to navigate through life, we can work on creating the life we always imagined is a much better approach.
We can be deliberate in defining what a life of joy or success looks like. For some, it might be money. But that will only take you so far and is really only one silly way to measure.
Imagine the life you want to create, and go out and do it.
