I got a lot of questions yesterday (yes, I personally read all of your replies) about my comment on having 29,918 days left and living until 111.
Well, now I'm down to 29,917, but I digress.
To me, it's just like any other goal.
I thought one day that it would be cool to live through a complete century, I was born in 1989, so if it happened, the century would be 2001-2100.
Obviously, as most of you have experienced, we can never take life for granted and we never know when we won't have another day.
For me, that creates urgency in every day.
Why would I want to be sitting around watching reality TV when I only have 29,917 days left to make an impact on the world?
It motivates me.
It's a "deadline" just like any other goal.
Think about how that impacts every decision I make (I'm not perfect, I don't run every single decision through this filter, but it does catch me from going too far)...
If I want to live to 111 I know I need to take better care of my body....
If I want to live to 111 I know I need to take care of my mind...
My financial and family planning is based on living until I'm 111.
It all matters.
I know that with only 29,917 days left there is still a lot I want to do, places I want to visit, and lives I want to change.
At the same time, I realize it doesn't all have to happen tomorrow.
It's a win-win mindset.
It allows me to have some urgency and make better long-term decisions, but also allows me to enjoy the moment, and be okay that it doesn't all have to get done today.
For goal setting, this is my ultimate long-term goal.
It's the foundation, but then just like any other goal, we need to break it down.
That's when we can take that and break it down into...
"What do I want to accomplish in the next 3 years?"
It's all connected.
As most of you know, between losing my mom at a young age and working in a nursing home for the better part of a decade, I have had my fair share of loss, as I'm sure a lot of you have as well.
Hopefully, it teaches you that there's only one way out of this thing called life, and we need to take care of ourselves in order to maximize our potential for making it the best trip around the bases because there's only one.
