January 15, 2016 – Aiming for Something

“We all live under the same sky, but we do not all have the same horizon.” –Konrad Adenauer

     Just for a moment image playing football without an end-zone; imagine bowling without the pins; imagine shooting a basketball without a goal. Without specific objectives, these activities would be exhaustingly mindless. Certain activities require certain aspirations.

With that being said, what are you doing today? What’s the target? What’s the aim? I’m not talking about going to work or picking up the kids or watching a movie. Specifically, with your life, what are you doing? The answer to that question doesn’t have to be grandiose, impressive, or far-fetching; but it should be something.

Bob Moawad said, “Most people don’t aim too high and miss they aim too low and hit.” Whether you aim too high or too low is not my big concern, it is whether or not you are shooting at something. You wouldn’t play baseball without bases, and neither should you live life without purpose.

Stop right now and ask yourself a very sobering question: what am I really doing today. Once you have established your target, your aim will be much better.
