“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
“Here are three ways you can start:
1. Choose to choose – meaning, you always have a choice; you always have a way that you can respond, adapt, and evolve to rise to the occasion.
2. Choose something, every day, that scares you – even just a little bit – and do it! Don’t think about it; just do it!
3. Choose your message – if people could remember you for just one message, for just one piece of advice, for just one insight or word of wisdom, what would that one be for you?”
“Vision building is the most relevant and rare asset in our society. We do not live in a world where data and knowledge are missing. Indeed, it is just the opposite. The amount of information is overwhelming. What is rare is the capability to make sense of this enormous and complex picture, to go beyond the past and existing patterns and imagine what is not there.”
