A Life By Design Forces You to Answer Hard Questions

I live in the crosshairs of purpose, leadership (personal and professional), and execution.

It is frustratingly simple and irrationally complex.

But a life by design forces you to answer hard questions.

And then edit those answers as you learn more about yourself, the world, and the impact you’d like to have.

It reminds me of an old fable:

“When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.”

Whatever your ambitions. Whatever your desires. It starts with your own clarity.
