Finding Your Story, Your Purpose & Your Compass

Ian Sanders delivered a great talk at a Do Lectures conference back in 2015.

The title of the talk “Finding Your Story, Your Purpose & Your Compass“.

It’s emotional, talks about dreams, passions and “just being YOU”. Plus I get a little mention too which I’m grateful for.

The talk got me really thinking whom I wanted to be and what I wanted to do at the ages of 8 -10  and 15-17 and where I’m know. I’m still processing the results because I’m quite shocked in very positive sense.

What can go right

The post What can go right is definitely worth pondering on.

My takeaways are as follows:

  • It’s easier to focus on what can go wrong (wondering why?)
  • Definitely more things can go wrong (not sure if all wrong outcomes are realistic)
  • It’s more difficult to protect against them, although you can take some measures you can’t cover all bases.
  • It’s more difficult to control them – earthquakes, flooding, accidents come to mind.
  • It seems that less things can go right (is it because we don’t dream big enough?)
  • Yet paradoxically there is a better control over them – it’s the daily actions that lead to outcomes we seek.
  • It’s more satisfying to do something right – cut the grass, write a blog post, play with your child, go out for a dinner with a loved one.

If you were to draw up a list of what is not worth losing? So far I came up with the following.

  • Family
  • Health
  • Soul

What about you?
