Quote of the Day – Stuff

Quote about Stuff

“Some of the Most Important Things in Life Aren’t Things.”

~Linda Ellerbee

Quote about StuffThought of the day….And a reminder to stop chasing stuff and start thinking about what really matters.  Have you thought about what you really want from life?  Have you thought about what you really want from your family?

Do you have a family plan – one that lays out whether you’d rather have a swimming pool or a lake house…Or live debt free and send your kids to college?

Time to start planning?



Life is What Happens…Quote of the Day

life is what happens while you are making other plans

“Life is What Happens to You When You Are Making Other Plans”

– Betty Talmadge


life is what happens while you are making other plansOh how true that is.  Without a plan for our life we wind up being pushed in many different directions. If we don’t have a clear vision of where we want to go, how are we going to get there.  Now I am not saying that your life needs to be mapped out like a MapQuest direction list, though if it were, I am pretty certain you would have no trouble getting to where you would want to be.

But we should think consciously about where we would like our life to go, otherwise time goes by and we never get there.  Or something happens – a major event that demands our full attention, leaving us no time to plan for ourselves. Or worse yet, our time is cut short.

So how do you plan for your life? You start by thinking and dreaming, asking the big questions…if I could do anything, what would it be…What would a perfect “ordinary” day or “work day” look like?  How much money would I have in bank account?  How would I spend my money besides the day to day to bills?  What would my family look like?  What would I look like?  How would I feel?

At this point, after answering your questions, you have a vision, a vision of your ideal self. Write it down. Find one part of the vision to work on – whether it’s what you do (or don’t do) for a living, or your bank account, or how you feel.  Start with yourself or something you have a lot of control on. If you want a well-organized house, don’t attack the man cave – work on your own area first.

Once you start to change, to be conscious about who you want to be in even one small area, you will find yourself making more conscious, mindful, right decisions for you in other areas.  Slowly or quickly your changes will add up – your plan will take shape and you will move towards your plan…Good luck – and in the comments, tell me some of the visions you have for yourself…
