Doing What You Love
I had a few hours to myself the other day, and found that I must not exclude myself from being the target of penetrating questions regarding things that matter.
For a variety of reasons, I had good cause to scribble on paper a list entitled "Things I love to do." It boiled down to this:
• Nurture the members of my immediate family
• Write and talk about interesting themes and connections from the Humanities, whether fact or fiction—for the sake of simply learning or for application purposes
• Learn in ways that stretch both my heart and mind
• Make people laugh as part of a memorable learning experience or conversation
• Motivate people toward positive behavioral and perspective changes
Generating such a list naturally led to the key questions I cannot and should not escape. They are universal in application, relevant to anyone in my humble opinion:
• What am I doing now that positions me to do more of what I love?
• What should I be doing, or doing more of?
• What should I stop doing?
I brainstormed several possible answers to each of these questions, which I shall not bore you with at the moment (or at any moment, hopefully). But put the questions to your own test...and give yourself permission to do more of what you love! Others will notice the change...
