How are you going to be meaningful?

vision versus just do somethingI saw this great quote a few days ago…

“Are you here to do something or just for something to do?”*

That made me think!
Do I want to do something that is meaningful?
Or just do whatever stuff turns up?

If I want to do something that matters, what is it?
Who would it matter to?
How would they benefit?
Have I already started?
What do I do next?

Now… what are you thinking, and what will you do next?

Maybe a next step is a vision of your optimistic future? Here are some tips on vision.

*From the book ‘A Leader’s Legacy’ by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner

My best wishes, Paul
