Thursday In the Life

"the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute."
Ayn Rand

OK, some diety has granted you your every wish and you can now do what ever you want for the rest of your life.  What would you do? If money were no object, what would you do?  Shopping? Traveling? Watch TV and lay on the couch eating Cheeto’s all day? Would that really make you happy?

I had a friend who retired.  He told me that after six months he was going crazy.  He got a job offer in another state.  He asked his wife, we’ve never lived there, do you want to try it?   Needless to say they are much happier now with their new life.

Some people know what they want, some people do what they do because that is what ‘came along’ or pays the bills.  If what you are doing every day doesn’t excite you, if you don’t wake up every morning excitied to start your day then think about what would do if you didn’t have to worry about money.  What would you do in your fantasy job?  Then think of things that you can change to get there. . .
