'I think.' Its a phrase we hear often, and one that many view as a weak basis of evidence, citing it as only an opinion. Well, I've spent this past week thinking about what I want as my "star" (an idea/goal that I want toward the end of my life). I can tell you - thinking has a lot of power.
My "star" centers around my family. I want to be able to reflect and claim that the majority of my time and energy was spend in talking, playing, discussing, crying, laughing, reaching, failing, succeeding, and many more things with my wife and children. Part of this reflection came as completing one of our assignments, to create a list of 50 bucket list items that we want to accomplish before we die. My top goals focus on creating a life and home that will cultivate love in our family and help us all explore and spend time building hobbies and exploring who we are as individuals and as a family unit.
One of my top goals, and one that really points me into an entrepreneurial career is creating a family camp. One thing missing in our society is real recreation time. We get so caught up with our careers and leisure (something that I believe is different than recreation, a type of pseudo-recreation), that we become unfulfilled balls of stress. I want to contribute to the de-stressing of society through allowing people to leave behind the cubicle and have pure fun and excitement with the ones they love the most. I find a potential calling in this, to help shift people's perspective back to the fact that time and energy is one of the most honorable use of our time we could ever hope to spend.
These are important steps for me to understand the big picture so that I may be able to begin to take the steps that will lead to this end.
