Do you ever feel a little bit aimless? Perhaps you don’t know what you are doing in your life? This could be for work, your personal life, or your life in general. I often see tongue-in-cheek posts about not knowing what we are doing in life. These are usually concluded with some kind of indulgent hobby as the main goal we have in this life, such as eating pizza. We live. We die. Maybe that’s about it. That’s at least what some may think.
But, let’s be honest. That’s not all there is to it. Is there not some part of us, even those that share the sentiments of today’s tongue-in-cheek memes, that fear living a useless life? I know I do. If I see myself on my death bed I want to know I’m leaving behind a life that is well lived. I want to know I’ve accomplished things that matter. I want to know I’ve impacted people positively.
Perhaps you have some goals, aspirations, and dreams that have fallen by the wayside for the American dream? Work hard and it will all pay off. Meanwhile, all the world you are doing to make it pay off is really just paying you. It leaves very little time for things that matter.
I recently took a break from writing to focus on family, as I had my 3rd son. But, my love of books stems from more than merely a hobby. I believe there is a greater good in reading and I believe we are losing a lot when we don’t take time to immerse ourselves in good literature, stories, and information. So, I want to take charge of that passion and share good stories for everyone to enjoy and share with others. I remember reading a book last year that talked about that ‘one’ thing. It’s titled The One Thing by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan. It was eye opening to say the least. Everyone has that ‘one’ thing they are passionate about and could make into something good. Whether it be a business, a platform, or something to make and give to others. We all have something. If you need some inspiration or drive to do something more with what you love, I recommend that book.
If you could take a passion, share it with others, and make it a reality, what would it be?
I will try to do some more writing as the time permits and book reviews. If there are any books you’d like me to look at and review, send me a message!
Until then, stay tuned!
