He asked me if I felt fulfilled in my business. Fulfilled? I'm successful, but what about fulfilled?
He reminded me of something I'd lost track of during the last few years between the explosion of my business and moving from place to place: simply be here now.
It seems like every day people intentionally create imbalance in their lives.
How many times have you told yourself, "I'll make plenty of money today so I can play tomorrow"?
It seems like I'm always thinking about work while playing, and thinking about play while working. Isn't it funny how the grass always seems to be greener on the other side?
The point, I guess, is that I always find myself worrying about the next step. What am I going to do at such-and-such a time and day, when what is really important is enjoying the here and now.
If you can immerse yourself in your everyday interactions with family, friends, coworkers and the world around you, while still remaining focused and driven to accomplish the things you want, you can achieve a much more fulfilled life.
