My message to you today is a simple one that will require you to take time to think about. It is one of the most important exercises you can perform in order to live a meaningful and on-purpose life. — That is to define and capture what is important to you.
What do you value? What are your values? Do you know what they are? Do you have them written down? Do you review them regularly?
This is different from your vision and goals although more than likely your goals will include living out your values.
This can’t be what somebody else thinks should be important to you.
It may take you a while to really figure it out. But it’s worth taking the time…
- What’s important to you?
- What are you willing to die for?
- Who’s important to you?
- Who are you willing to die for?
- What do you want your life to stand for?
- What do you want said about the person ‘you’ when you’re no longer here with us?
Our time on this earth is short and the way to make the most of it is to decide what is important and then manage those decisions everyday.
In loving memory of my brother, Steven Lewis, who five years ago passed away and left this earth way too soon.
The unexamined life is not worth living. – Socrates –
