I must have only slept a few hours but I feel rejuvenated. I spent a good deal of time on Saturday in deep thought and meditation. I do this pretty often to give myself some time to reflect. Have gratitude for the things I have and clear focus for the things I desire.
Most of my thoughts revolve around Phroogal but they have begun to drift into other aspects of my life. I realized something about myself that regardless of what situation I am in – I am a workaholic. I have accomplished many things in life – professionally and personally – but I drive myself hard. I am definitely more critical of myself and expect a lot. So I work harder to deliver them and can push myself too thin.
I asked myself, “Why am I doing what I’m doing?” and “How does it add value to my life, to others and the world?”
I am a dreamer and big vision holder. I will work on the details and roll-up my sleeves. But, if there is one thing I learned while backpacking is that I need to always take a step back and reassess.
Things will continue to work out as they have and getting bogged down in the mundane only leads itself to discontentment. I’ve always been civic and social minded. Entrepreneurship does test your limits because most of the push is in profitability. I’ve never been driven by money and that’s helped me continue to push through all my dreams. The money does follow and the moment I focus on it the moment the enjoyment dissipates.
It’s 8 months in 2013 and time surely does fly. I can’t change the speed of time but I can change what I do while it ticks along. There is still a lot that needs to get done with Phroogal. There is still many ways to make an impact in this world. There is time to have fun in every aspect of what I do.
