Life is so unpredictable.
I learned yesterday that a close friend who’s cancer returned at the end of 2020 has days to live (update: He passed on Feb 5th). I’ve been helping him with some research, we spoke last week and he was good. That changed dramatically over the weekend out of the blue.
On a call with a client yesterday, I learned that her husband was diagnosed with a melanoma. He had surgery and thankfully they got it all.
And one of my team members learned on Sunday that someone close to her had passed.
Life is unpredictable. Life can be woefully short.
And that means we need to live it to the fullest, whatever that means for you.
For me, I’ve decided to incorporate more “experiments” into my business and life. “Gentle Challenges” if you will. Not goals, more stepping stones to goals or to things I’d like to try as part of enhancing my life overall.
- Record and post a video a day for 10 days
- Write and mail a handwritten card every day for a month
- No personal spending for a month (outside of fresh food) and donate what I would have spent to food security
- Declutter/Donate 100+ items in 30 days
- Practice an anonymous random act of kindness daily for two weeks
- No phone/tech every weekend for a month
- Meditate daily for a month
- Write 1000+ words/day for a month
The most important part? These are intention experiments — no stress, no pressure, simply experiments to be done as inspired. I’ll be posting some here on the blog.
How about you? Any experiments in your near future?
And, in the spirit of Intention Experiments, I’m hosting a complimentary virtual workshop February 16th at 3pm Eastern on Overcoming Overwhelm so you know exactly what to focus on in your business to achieve your goals, not anyone else’s.
Recording will be sent to all registrants if you can’t join live.
