The One Question You MUST Answer
I get it. You’ve got enough on your plate as it is — too much, in fact. Your schedule is unrelenting. Your to-do lists are exhausting. You’re being asked to do more with less, and you’ve gotten used to squeezing every last drop of productivity out of every single hour of every single day.
Ever feel like you’re a slave to your schedule? Overworked, out of touch, disconnected from the life you’ve always wanted?
I bet some of you even feel guilty about taking the time to read this post. But here’s a secret: Reading this post may be the best thing you do today.
Because your life and your legacy will not be based on the number of items you check off from your overcrowded agenda. Success is not found in staying up too late and waking up too early and working too long for too many days in a row.
That’s not the life you want.
How much longer are you willing to continue doing the same thing only to discover the brass ring remains over the next horizon, around the next bend in the road, constantly just out of reach?
Somewhere deep in your bones you know that creating a lasting legacy lies in living your life with passion, committing your time, energy, and resources to something you believe in that will make a difference in this world. That’s never easy. The easy thing and the right thing are hardly ever the same thing. But it is possible.
If you’re willing to stop the trend of just doing what’s in front of you, you can begin right here and right now by answering one, single, potentially life-changing question:
What do you really want?
I ask clients this question all the time, and you’d be surprised how few leaders can even come close to articulating a coherent answer.
What do you really want most out of life? When you come to your sunset years, what is it that you want your one and only life to have been about?
When you can clearly and confidently state the one thing that drives all your choices, actions, behaviors, and decisions, you gain a level of clarity and focus that transcends whatever you think has to get done today, this month, or even this year. You'll start to discern between opportunities and distractions. You'll find joy again. You'll find peace.
If you need help answering that question, contact me today. I help people just like you discover and pursue their passion. I help leaders lead better — from the boardroom to the breakfast table. That's my one thing.
Don’t keep putting it off. You owe it to yourself and to the people you lead.
