The late Steve Jobs, while speaking to the graduating class at Stanford University, once spoke the following words . . .
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
So what if today was your last day? Would you be looking forward to doing what you are about to do? If your answer is no, perhaps it is time for you to make a change.
A couple of years ago, I joined my friend Dan Webster to write FINDING YOUR WAY: Discovering the Truth About You. The book was created to help those who would answer “NO” to Jobs “Would I want to do what I am about to do today?” question.
If you fall into that group, or know someone who does, let me encourage you to visit findingyourway.us and join the movement.
“Finding your Way is not just an engaging story, it is a brilliant process that will help you find the work you were born to do . . . at any age. I’m not only giving this book to college graduates, I’m also giving it to a few fifty year old friends searching for their passion and purpose.”

Life is too short to go through the motions. Every day is a gift. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself if you are doing the things that bring you life. If not, maybe it’s time to start FINDING YOUR WAY.
Leadership Begins at Home,
If you could do one thing today, what would it be?
