I have a “Choose. Create. Connect.” mantra. It says happiness comes from choosing what you want to achieve. Creating new things or ideas towards that goal, and connecting with people.
However, choosing isn’t just a one time deal. There is a long-term choice. The passion. The mission. The goal. The problem to solve.
But, there is also the short-term decisions. The strategies, the tactics and the methods that will achieve the long-term.
Everyday you get a choice to choose how to work towards the goal. And that’s probably harder than the long-term choice itself. Figuring out these short term choices are the things we really doubt, after all, if we don’t make them correctly, the long-term vision is never found.
