Stop This. Start That.

growthImagine what you would do if money didn’t matter.

Then, start working your way toward that goal.

I seem to be having this conversation a lot lately, and it is burning in me like a fire!  I’m not even morose on this subject.  I’m indignant!  Having read so many of the sentiments suggesting that no one reaches the end of their life wishing they’d spent more time at the office, I have come to the conclusion that most of us read these words, nod approvingly, and go right back to doing what we were doing before.

Why?  Why would we acknowledge the truth in those words and proceed as per usual?  Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not suggesting that everyone needs to quit their jobs and pursue their greater truth.  In some cases, that’s the precise thing that some need to do.  In many cases, people need to go into work with a greater purpose and do things differently.  In some cases, this has nothing at all to do with work.

Here’s something that every person reading this knows:  YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS FOR YOU!  You know exactly what I’m talking about, and you’ve already whispered it to yourself while reading this.

{Tweet That!}  The journey is the greatest part of the fun!

So this thought is simple.  Do stuff that matters, and do it now!  I recently heard Bob Goff say “I don’t care if you call it a ministry.  I don’t care if you call it missions.  I don’t care what you call it!  Just call it being helpful!”

I would love to hear what you’ve been looking forward to that you’re now DOING!  Please don’t just read this.  DO IT!

In fact, be my hero today.  In addition to DOING, please help me share the word and infect as many people as possible with the DOING bug!  Share it.  Tweet it. Email it.  Whatever works best for you! Thank you!

Tomorrow Begins Today.
