How do I summarize my goals to fill the “dash” between the day that I was born and the day I die? After years of thought- if I loved well and steward well and it was written not only on the tablet of my gravestone but on the hearts of those that know me; then I am at peace that I have lived my life well.
To that end, I think mostly in pictures. So in order to process all the areas of my life; I needed a photo of what I am stewarding. This is my first iteration of it.
Today I had coffee with one of my friends of wisdom. As we were reviewing my ecosystem some clarity of thoughts came.
- First- it is truly a picture that captures a moment in time. It already needs updating.
- Two- it prioritizes the transactional aspect of my relationships, not the relational part.
- Three- Life is three-dimensional and it’s difficult to fully capture it in a two-dimensional way.
- Four- It’s still super helpful as imperfect as it is, to take “photos” of your life. If you aim for nothing, you will achieve it!
