There is a perception that if we can hang in then things will get better.
Not trying to be all Debbie Downer. Hear me out.
What if they don't?
Why should it...?
It is a predominately western philosophy to assume better things to come.
There is nothing inherently wrong with this philosophy except that it is not based in fact. If anything it is an assumption.
I cannot assume anything, I must not. It is a passive response.
What do you believe about destiny and future?
Do you believe it matters what efforts and plans you make?
If you don't, rock on...keep with the cruise control.
For the rest of us, my question is this, what are you doing to contribute to a brighter future?
Do you have plans? Are they written down? Are they Shared?
What are the stakes? What do you have to gain? What do you have to loose?
Do you have a timeline, with milestones? Which area do you want to grow?
If the answer to all or some of these questions is no or I don't know...that's OK, guess what, start today...now.
I saw a picture; it was an individual in a tiny dinghy in great swells of the great sea.
It made me think of life. We can't control the waves or storms, but we can place our hand on the tiller.
We can’t. We must not take our hand off the tiller, or worse allow others to put their hand on it.
Today in your boat...It’s your today...nobody else's.
Today, let’s not take things for granted.
Make the day count.
