​[W]e are torn this way and that. Social and business pressures push us, and we go along, but the spark within is hard to extinguish, and even as we hurry to conform we may pause to wonder if this is all there is to life, and we glance uneasily over our shoulders (once a week or more), wondering vaguely if we haven’t forgotten something, a cheerful word perhaps, a quiet moment, a little love – could it possibly be ourselves we have forgotten?

– Robert S. Hartman, Freedom to Live

We can not only remember ourselves, we can bring that spark to our social and business worlds for their benefit and ours.

So good, yes?

PS: How? Find your SweetSpot and build upon it.

This Ought To Do It

I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want. – Mark Twain

We often don’t have a clear, compelling, and commonly-understood (by all the people who matter) set of goals for our businesses or our lives. This makes it rather difficult for us to achieve what we most desire. But picking such goals can seem impossible.

The truth is that it’s only confusing. All we need is a place to start. Here’s a pretty perfect place to start: happiness, freedom, and growth for yourself and those you come in contact with.

That ought to do it, ya?

 

In your corner,

Purpose, meaning, significance, satisfaction

Purpose, meaning, significance, and satisfaction. These are what we all long for in our jobs. Yet most of us hold ourselves away from purpose, meaning, etc. because we think we can’t afford it, don’t deserve it, or can’t find it.

You can find a job or business that is chock full of meaning, purpose, etc. Start by finding your SweetSpot.

You can also afford it. Your SweetSpot includes an accurate picture of your non-negotiable income needs. Commit to your SweetSpot and build a plan (which may contain more than one significant steps to reach your ultimate goal).

And you deserve it. C’mon! We are talking about the magnificent you, aren’t we?

In your corner,

Mike

PS: Thought so.
