So, tell me what you want

So tell me what you want, what you really really want?

Have you figured it out yet? What you really really want? Or are you still looking? Do you think you have it, then you realise it wasn’t what you wanted at all?

Figuring out goals is one of the most challenging, yet most important things we can do, because if we don’t know what we want, the chances of getting it are not high.

As a pilot once had to explain to his passengers:
“I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that we are
lost. The good news is that we have a tailwind behind us, so we are making great time in getting there!”

Isn’t it just the truth that we spend so much of our lives in the same way? Directionless, but working our behinds off to get there.

But just imagine if you won the lottery tomorrow. You would have enough money to live comfortably and not worry about your day to day needs. What would you do? How would you spend your time? What passions would you pursue? What dreams would you chase? What purpose would excite you enough to bounce out of bed every morning? Most of us earn more than a million pounds during our working lives, some very much more than that. So in truth, it isn’t really money that is stopping us - it is clarity of purpose.

Knowing what you really really want, has to be the first step in attempting to get it.

  1. Good post Caroline. Enjoyed the little touch of humour too. I agree it is important to know what we want otherwise much energy can be wasted arriving at the place where we didn't really want to be! Just off to focus on my 2010 goals ....

    I aree totally, the trouble as always is just getting there?? Any insight in to how I find this place is always welcomed. Lets assume I won £56m today what would I do?? I'd need to take time out, probably give some ££ away then reflect.?.

    thank you Robert

  3. Knowing what we want isn't always easy, I agree. But acknowledging we don't quite know, and taking steps to find out is likely to be a great investment in time and effort. Things start dropping into place once you know what you want. It's as if the universe provides ...
