The kids sat around me in a pool of tumbled wooden blocks. They watched with gleeful smiles as I began to build a tower. How high could I get this tower? As I gingerly set the last block on top, the kids would laugh loudly as the tower tumbled down.
Life is like this. We’re balancing blocks of time on each other until the weight is too much and it comes crashing to the floor. We’re not building for a purpose but rapidly stacking one thing on top of another and our motivations for doing this are a little fuzzy.
Instead, stack your time for a purpose.
- What are you building?
- Why are you doing what you are doing?
- How can you do it better?
When the blocks tumble around you, learn from it and rebuild. Rebuild better.
