Sometimes it is easier to define what something is by highlighting what it is not….
Wouldn’t it would be wonderful to wake up each morning and “know” what you were suppose to do? By that, I don’t mean that you have a detailed “to do” list by the bedside table that instructs you on all the tasks for the day. What I mean is that when you opened your eyes and realized that consciousness had returned, you would feel deep down in your soul (i) exactly where the focus for the day should lie, (ii) that it was not a forced but rather it simply was what you must do, (iii) that pursuing this course of action would provide you satisfaction, (iv) that the world would be a better place by you following this path.
When you get to this state, you have overcome ambiguity.
Unfortunately most of us are plagued with uncertainty (ambiguity) through out each day. As a result, we fall in to our daily routine. It provides a form of clarity and focus; and, allays the minds frustration with ambiguity. Alas, the relief is short lived. Whether it’s an hour, a day, a week, or a month, the brain eventually clicks back to the question of “Is this what I should be doing?”.
There’s no silver bullet in today’s post. Rather, it’s offered as a catalyst to start you down the path where you will wake up in a “knowing” state.
With that in mind:
What are the three things you would most love to have be on your mind when you wake up tomorrow?
As always, thanks for the time.
