At some point, you’re going to have start asking yourself some questions.
Am I really doing what I want to do? Do I have boundaries in place that help me decide what I’ll do versus what I won’t? Am I maximizing my capacity? Am I improving for the sake of self or for someone else? Am I really serving a higher purpose or am I just serving someone else’s?
Once you start asking these kinds of questions and give a great deal of thought to the answers, you might just start identifying that destination you keep wondering about. You might even find a little freedom and joy.
However, the caution is that over time, you might also find yourself incrementally trading that freedom and joy for some money, status or approval from others.
You might find yourself signing up for nothing but building your resume or your money. Now, that might be all well and good except that in the process, you might miss that destination you’ve been wondering about for so long.
Truth be told, the best time to ask all the right questions is now.
