Mach Zero Podcast #27: The Brevity of Life
Dear High Level Performer,
Do you ever feel you’re wasting too much time? Do you find yourself waiting on things to line up to initiate creating an important goal or dream?
We all at times fall off and forget to remember what really does matter. Our priorities get run amuck by distactions and stuff.
I’ll bet you wonder what you’ll say about your life when you look back on how you lived and what lived you. What will your report card look like? Will your choices have gotten you near what mattered to you? Will you have grabbed all that can be learned from your experiences?
What is inevitable is everything did change. And even expectations we had weren’t fulfilled, because life isn’t meant to meet them. So here’s a question to ask yourself:
“If you could not be sure that what you’re doing will bear fruit, why would you do it?”
If there is no place for hope, nor fear, why would you do what you’re doing? I asked forty people this question, and here’s the most common answer:
“I don’t know, I’d be dead if I didn’t.” Their leadership couldn’t guarantee them the world would shift, or whether their future would become the grandiose hopes they had, but fundamentally, their urge to lead was because what they do day in day out matters, and it is to be done for it’s own sake!”
What staggers me is I’ve asked hundreds of creators why they do what they do and their answer is most often: “I don’t know, I just know I need to do what I’m do, it’s not a decision, it’s a must.”
