Who do you think said this? “For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” I’m not gonna tell you who it was. Not yet.
But let’s focus on that “need to change” part.
Because it’s true for everyone just about all the time. And here’s why. I’m sure you’ve heard another famous saying, “The only thing constant is change.” Right? Well, it’s true. The world is constantly changing. And nothing illustrates that better than technology.
We’ve gone from dots and dashes clicked along wires strung up across the country to artificial intelligence sending tons of data through thin air. There are brilliant people working on amazing things. All around us all the time. Maybe you’re one of them. If so, here’s another quote from the same guy I quoted before.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
I’m still not gonna say who it was. But which part of that quote sounds like you? Are you satisfied and doing great work? Or are you still looking?
Remember, don’t settle.
Because when you believe you don’t need to change is usually when you need to the most. It’s kinda like exercise. When you least feel like it is when you need to most.
But moving and changing require focus. Here’s one final quote, from that same guy, about that.
“That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”
And one of the best ways to improve your focus is to improve your control over your schedule. That’s why next month’s UNversity class will be about schedule control. Also known as time management.
You should be there as I go over:
- Time classifications
- Time blocking, and
- Daily Intentions
Enroll today for a monthly tuition of $15. I haven’t raised the price since I started UNversity. But that’s likely to change in 2023. So, get in now and be in time for the next lesson on the first Thursday in May (same goes for each month).
The deadline to enroll is the last day of this month, April 2023, when the clock strikes midnight. And that’s only five days away. So, don’t delay. Link is below.
Oh yeah, those quotes are from Steve Jobs. Remember him?
