Do you ever ask yourself, “How did I get here?”

Do you ever ask yourself, “How did I get here?”

Quick digression. I can’t say that without hearing it in David Byrne’s voice

So, recently, I did and it was very interesting – for me. I could pinpoint events that totally changed the course of my life. Events that mean I can see my life as distinct chapters of generally five years or so.

This was a great exercise because it became very clear to me that the choices I make and the attitude I had clearly sent me in one direction or another.

An example would be joining the Air Force and another would be leaving the Air Force. Both of these events had huge effects on my life. The first meant I left home at 18 and moved to the other end of New Zealand. The second made it easy for me to get a job because I had a range of skills, turned up on time, and worked hard.

Your decisions today do affect your life tomorrow and this exercise makes that very clear. By looking ahead to where you want to be you can decide the path you will have to take to get there. Then as you make decisions think about whether this choice keeps you on the path and is going to get you there. Maybe do it every so often as it will keep you on track to the life you want.

Have a wonderful day.
