I speak to a lot of groups of people AND Purpose is something that I’m big on, and it invariably leads to someone asking the question, “I don’t know what I want to do. What should I do?”
Not a question I can answer for them!
But, consider this.
If you are standing at the end of a very long corridor, you can’t see what doors are open and what is through those doors. To see through the doors what do you have to start doing?
Moving forward of course.
That’s like life, we can’t see the opportunities available to us if we are standing still.
So, my advice to people is to take the best guess you can and start moving.
You can always go through a new door, but you’ll never know what’s through the many doors available to you if you’re standing still.
On Monday I attended the funeral of a good friend of mine from medical school, Andy Greer. He died suddenly while working a shift at Christchurch Hospital. He was 40.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who loves failure.
Challenges are a daily phenomenon for the entrepreneur.
Heaven is not wanting to be anywhere else.
That brings out our best.
We’ve all heard the statement, the ends justifies the means.
If you want to do anything extraordinary, it’s likely that you’re going to need to break some rules.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.
