If you’re like most of our readers, clients, and seminar attendees, you have a desire to make an impact in the world. You want to be a part of something bigger than yourself that makes a real difference. You know there’s got to be more to life than just making it through the week and living on the weekend.
But life just seems too distracting. There’s always something that needs your attention. There seems to be too many demands and too little time. You may also wonder if you’re up to the task. You wonder if you have what it takes to make the impact that you want. Or it could be that you are already involved in a helping career that makes a significant impact, but the end of your career is coming up.
If you were honest with yourself, is it possible that you can end up at the end of your life and be wishing you spent more time on things of greater importance? Would you wish that you had taken greater risks and not cared about what other people might think or if you might fail?
I (John) have felt this way. In 2005, I had a heart attack. I remember being curled up on the bathroom floor feeling terrified. I had the thought that maybe I wouldn’t be going back to work because I wouldn’t be around anymore. I was staring at the end of my life and started to evaluate how I had lived. I asked myself, “Did I love people well?”, and “Did my life matter?”
I was wishing I had spent more time on things of greater importance. I wished I had taken greater risks and not cared about what other people might think or if I might fail.
