If you were able to create the perfect pair of jeans, custom designed for you, what would your pattern look like? For your home, what would your blueprint include? And for your life, what plan will you create, so you live it by design and not by default?
Few people I know have a plan for their lives. Many are passive spectators, watching their lives unfold a day at a time. They may plan their careers, a move to a new city, or even a vacation. But a rare few actually plan and live their lives based on their dreams. As a result, many end up discouraged and disillusioned, wondering where they went wrong. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can choose to live your life on purpose. It begins by deciding to create the life you want to live.
For those things that are most important to us, I believe we need to understand what our dreams and passions truly are and how we envision our life to be in the future. We then need to create a plan that has structure yet flexibility, so we accomplish the key goals in our lives that are of greatest value to us. Lastly, when we know what we aspire to and we have a plan to achieve it, then we simply need to live it. Live your life to the fullest, filled with love and passion, gratitude and grace, integrity and honor, and countless moments that are meaningful, extraordinary and memorable. Dream it. Plan it. Live it.
