Recently the discussions around the boardroom table have delved into the deeper “why”. Why do we do what we do? Start with the why, rather than the what and how.

Studies of sustainable sales cycles show the relationship between time and money impacts how those hidden dimensions impact perspectives and choices. Time is a commodity that cannot be purchased. Those in business who are able let go of fear of scarcity, stop chasing the buck, do what they love for the love of what they do, experience a more meaningful and prosperous experience of life.

Accordingly, coaches echo a reoccurring sentiment; the first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

  • What do you love?
  • What fulfills you?
  • What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work?

Then consider your story—what got you where you are and what accomplishments have been achieved. Past experiences which make you proud.

  • What would you do if you had no limits?
  • Where would you go?
  • Who would you spend time with?

Now, we’re getting to the future vision. A coach once said; “Always make your future bigger than your past.” He continued by saying, never allow yourself to reach your goals because you should never be done. After some consideration, he clarified that the goals and vision shift over time, as you reach one goal there should be another marker because life is a continuous cycle and there is no “time” to give up and in this “time” has become friend not foe.

The message it seems is to stop thinking about the limitations and what may be impossible, instead it’s seeing the possible, the opportunities in problems and pursuing passions.
