What if you played hooky for a day? What would you do? Where would you go?
After her 20-something son told Sam Horn, “You’ve created a life where you can do anything you want and you’re not taking advantage of it,” she realized he was right and there was no present like the time – and no time like the present – to take her business on the road and combine her work and recreation in a YEAR BY THE WATER.
What she experienced along the way disrupted everything she thought she knew about responsibility and the value of “hard work.” Many of us are taking responsibility to an extreme by working ourselves to death and taking care of everyone else but our self.
Paulo Coelho says, “One day, you’re going to wake up and there won’t be any time left to do the things you’ve always wanted to do.” What have you always wanted to do? Are you waiting until you retire? Until bills are paid and the kids go off to college? Until you have more time, money or freedom? What if that never happens?
The good news is, you don’t have to quit your job, win the lottery, take off on a road trip or walk away from your responsibilities to lead a life you love. All you have to do is get crystal clear about what matters to YOU and start bringing more of that into your work, career, relationships and life.
