Moving forward… but where to?

This morning I went out for a quick run. I wanted to take advantage of the fact that I woke up earlier than I used to – thanks to a quake though. I noticed that many people ( at least 10) were waiting for the bus to come by. I probably have seen this people around the neighborhood before, but today it caught my attention that they all were looking desperate to get going. I started to think on the so many different reasons why they needed to get going quick; each and everyone of them with different motivation and eventually, with different outcomes.

As I saw how today’s world make us run -in the example of the people waiting for the bus, I started wondering how many of us have a clear understanding of why is that we are running. We want to get to places fast; we want to talk to people “asap”. When you start thinking on those agents that allow you to speed up everything, you need to determine if the rush is worth something or not.

There may be several reasons why you want your life to go past fast. The main idea of this note is to make you think what are the drivers that make you rush on everything and to start analyzing if there are situations that could have a slower pace. One of the most important aspects of enjoying life is to live every moment as the last one you have. If you move too fast on aspects that may be important, you will end up regretting about it in the long run.

How can you determine what are the things in life that deserve quality time? The answer to this is as varied as the opinions people have on death penalty for instance. I would suggest to consider the following points:

  • Does it impact ( or is it part already) any of your life’s ultimate goals?
  • Would it influence others positively?

By answering these simple questions you will get to narrow those aspects in your life that are worth spending time on.  Regardless of what that is, the ultimate result is that sense of fulfillment that make you proud and thankful at the same time.
