Standing Up Straight

I read this article on the Huffington Post this afternoon and I really liked what it had to say about being present in an ever-busy life. The article is geared towards women, but you male readers may find a nugget of inspiration in it, too. I found this piece to be very timely in my life at the moment. My work schedule has been crazy lately and sometimes it’s so easy to lose sight of what’s important. Here’s a juicy tidbit that I hope you’ll cling to…

“Here’s the thing: I don’t want to be striving for bigger/better/higher/more every minute of every day. I don’t always want to have a larger goal. That just sounds exhausting and, worst of all, completely joyless. I want to enjoy my days: past, present, and future. I take great pleasure in my professional success, but I can tell you with certainty that, when I’m lying on my deathbed, I’m not going to be thinking about career wins.”
