Where will you be 5 years from today??

28 Oct

Ian’s mom, Frida, recently gave him the book Where Will You Be 5 Years From Today by Dan Zadra and I think it’s safe to say I’ve abducted  it from him.  This book seriously re-vamped my attitude towards future goals and is a good reminder of the fact that nothing is out of reach.  Life is all about figuring out what you want and how to get it and this book is a good guide to searching for and obtaining those things.

Sometimes I find myself saying to myself I’m too tired to work on something I have in the works for the future but the future is exciting and should give me energy.  This book is really interesting and a good investment if you ask me.  The most important investment you can make is in yourself.

This is your life, your one-and-only life.  You determine what’s possible.  Make choices, ask questions, take steps – today is the day

    Yep, I really liked that book too. All week I’ve been telling folks about the math equation he suggested. Take your age, multiply by 365. Then subtract from 21,275 (the number of days in the average life). It’s startling to realize how few we have left to make a difference. My takeaway: Make every one count.
