THE “CHECKLIST-LIFE MANIFESTO”
Goes Something Like This …
go to college … get a good job … meet “the perfect” (wo)man … get engaged … have a wedding … buy a house … have a baby … live to work (not work to live) … drool over your ever-growing retirement account or stress over the non-existing retirement account that’s only made it as far as your to-do list.
if you make it to retirement, you attempt to travel or dust off that list of hobbies you’ve saved for one day. One day when you realize your body isn’t like it used to be. You attempt to spend days with your children who are now adults with busy lives.
AND JUST BEFORE YOU DIE YOU WONDER
“why did I wait
so long to live?”
Whatever your truths are, perhaps it’s time to rip up the Checklist-life Manifesto and start redefining the rules for answering the simple, yet often difficult, question of …
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
It’s not what do your parents, lover, friends, children, boss, employees, customers, or therapist want.
THIS IS ALL ABOUT YOU.
Don’t know what you want? That’s okay too; we’ll get you there.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
