Have your cake and eat it, too

How would you spend your time?

"The starting point of all achievement is desire."

If you could live your dream life, how would you spend your time?

In 2007 Armand and I started having conversations about what we wanted our lives to look like. By 2009 we had more or less gotten clarity, through trial and error. Since that time we've been inching closer and closer to our dream...and refining it along the way.

"First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination."
- Napoleon Hill

Pilots set a flight plan before they depart an airport and check navigation regularly to make sure they're still on-course for their destination. That's how Armand and I get closer to our goals: we talk. Not idle chit-chat, but about our dreams and goals. And we remind each other of those dreams and goals, and encourage each other to take the necessary actions.

Yes, you can have your cake and eat it, too. But you won't get what you want...until you have a clue what it is.

The 3 questions I begin my Celebrate Your Life in Beautiful Images online course with are:

  1. How do you want your life to look?
  2. What do you want more of?
  3. How would you spend your time?

These are not easy questions.

We all know what we do NOT want. Figuring out what we DO want is another story. Thing is, once you know what you do want, then you can set a new course the way a pilot does...and take the steps to correct course for that new destination.
