It’s interesting how my priorities change over the years. I’m sure that a lot of that is due to my own personal and professional changes. As we mature, our wants and needs change. I always understood this concept but, never really paid any attention to it until recently.
We’re moving for quality of life, basically. I want my 2+ hours, currently spent on Los Angeles freeways, back. Oh, the things that I could do with 2 more hours each day.
Over the past couple of years I’ve become more “outspoken”, or at least more willing to speak my mind. Of course, I always attempt to do this in mature, professional ways. But, it’s still difficult for me to control/hide my passion and impatience when it’s related to something I really care about.
I think it’s realization that I have a tremendous amount of power and ability to achieve what I want to achieve. I’ve been selling myself short for far too long. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve had to prove to myself that I can achieve if I dedicate myself long enough to get to my goals. Unfortunately, it’s a lesson I’m continually having to learn.
There are so many things I want to achieve. There are goals that I have at work, for Connect-A-Kid, for my wife and family, and some very personal goals. And, while I don’t feel a sense of urgency to achieve them all, I don’t want to wait any longer to start working on them.
