A Way to Approach Your Life and a Way to Make Sense of Your Life
I was chatting with Sandra last night and she reminded me of something that I had said to her about 20 years ago. I don’t remember what started the conversation back then, but I was sharing my philosophy on life (at that point in time).
It was three simple words – balance, perspective & timing. I know it’s a big call, but I believe that if you can master these three concepts you can achieve just about anything in life and have fun doing it.
It’s been a few years since I’ve put any deliberate thought into these things and it kind of caught me by surprise when Sandra brought them up.
These words were etched into my being many years ago. I remember sharing them with Sandra and a few other people around the same time, but I didn’t think anyone else would remember these words but me.
Although I haven’t consciously thought of them for a long time they are a big part of who I am, so I was both humbled and surprised when Sandra started talking about these magical words last night.
A lot of time has passed since I first shared these words, but in her true form, Sandra hasn’t just sat on these words and taken them as gospel. Instead, she’s looked deeper to find her own meaning and now she’s making me go back and look deeper too.
Rather than keeping these lessons just to ourselves, I’d like to share a few thoughts about these words.
