“Live life on purpose.” Simon Sinek

As simple as this sounds, every action we take in our lives should have a clear and defined purpose.

As an analogy, let’s use money. When we spend money, there’s a reason. Food for tonight’s dinner, a new pair of shoes, gasoline, etc. It’s very easy to justify. We would never throw our money into the wind. Yet,… we can often find ourselves doing just that with our time.

Unlike money, which can cycle back around on that next paycheck, we don’t get restocked on time. Be it a morbid thought, we know our days here are unlimited; time is our most precious, irreplaceable resource.

As we move through our day, take an objective look at the actions we take. Like a CFO analyzing a day of business, reflect tonight on where we spent our time. Because at “years-end-summary,” when our time comes: let’s be proud about how we chose to spend those resources. We only get one chance to do so.

“I was complaining I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” Confucius

a short story to share. A man went into a shop top order some flowers to be sent to his mother as a gift. She lived 200 miles away.

As he got out of his car to go into the shop he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother, but I only have .75 cents and roses cost two dollars. The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his mother’s flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said yes please! You can take me to my Mother. She directed him to the cemetery where she placed the rose on the freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, cancelled the gift order to his mother, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.

At times, we can take many such relationships with our family and friends for granted. Let’s think about this.

“I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took, any excuse.” Florence Nightingale

The terrifying thing about excuses, is that it blinds us to our next move. If we excuse or try to justify a misstep, we at a subconscious level tell ourselves that this is “out of my control.” That this was a fluke, or a chance event, and there’s nothing I could do differently next time.

On the flip side, owning what happens is not about beating ourselves up or throwing pity parties. It’s solely so that we can open our vision on where to go next. To see the lesson in front of us.

Excuses are contagious, and horribly damaging. Let’s take the opposite road, as growth begins with responsibility.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but rather by the seeds you plant.” – Robert Lewis Stevensen
The definition of success is whatever we make of it.
Many directly link results to success. And the lack thereof, to failure. But what if we reshaped that way of thinking. What we measured success, as the seeds we “plant for tomorrow”? What if we decide that a successful day is deemed so purely by how much we learned?
We can view days as tests. or we can view days as opportunities. Time to go tend to the field.

“Every action you take is a vote for the type of a person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.” James Clear

If someone has 10 coins, are they rich? Let’s say no. What if they have 100 coins? Probably not. What about 1000 coins?
There is a tipping point. A number where our answer changes to yes. It actually narrows down to a single coin where that takes place.

But we know it wasn’t “just” the single coin. It was the culmination of the many before. We can apply this same logic to our identity. By itself, walking the shopping cart back to its home isn’t going to change who we are as an individual. By itself, picking up trash outside of the local school isn’t going to either. It’s the culmination, that will. These votes for who we are, seemingly small at the time, add up.

A pitfall in life is when we view instances throughout our day as insignificant. We tell ourselves, “this won’t make a difference.” Yet at the end of the day, just like the single coin, it’s all that matters.
