What am I going to do with this short life?

by | Mar 7, 2024 | Blog | 0 comments

The first step in finding a joy-filled, purpose-driven life that’s right for you is to consider a shift in your current paradigm.


At some point, we’ve all had a gap in our hectic schedules and taken a moment to consider this question.

Depending on where you were born, your options are probably limitless.

But, just like trying to pick out the perfect brand of pillow, iPhone case or multivitamin on Amazon, it’s easy to drown in all the choices.   

You might be wondering…

  • Should I become the CEO?
  • Follow my passion?
  • Move to Montana?
  • Take up fly fishing?

While there’s no perfect answer, let me help you get moving in the right direction.

Today, most people wonder… How can I feel more happiness (see the above questions)?

This question leads down a selfish path of introspection rarely delivering anything more than fleeting enjoyment.     

Instead, of wondering what it takes to make your life better, instead try this approach.

Focus on the needs of others wondering… How can I help my friends, family, coworkers, and community (especially those who need it the most) find more joy in their lives?
