I came across this image while browsing The Facebook. It belongs to the group “I don’t care about $$, as long as I don’t have to spend my life in ….” This image got the wheels turning in my mind.
The majority of adults are fascinated with living life on their own terms or having the total freedom to take a trip around the world, not work at all, and live the dreams of their youth. What stops us in adulthood from reaching that plateau?
A comedian recently made the statement that “The Person You Are At 30, is basically who you will be!”
Is 30 the cut-off age for dreams and achievement? Do we have to compromise the dreams of warm, sandy beaches for being buried in bills, family obligations and growing older?
As you go through your workweek, Ask yourself “Why Am I Here?” and “How Can I Do My Job Better?”
In my own personal journey, I’ve found that work with purpose is often the most productive. If a streetsweeper understands that this job is a stepping stone to help his kids afford private schooling, then he will work harder and his job will become an “artform”.
There are very good books on the subject that provide step by step instructions on how to “break free”.
Find me on Twitter and Answer the Question: Do I work to live or live to work and why?? I look forward to your responses
