It is often said that most people spend more time planning a weekend trip than they do planning their lives.
That is a rather harsh statement.
Unfortunately, it is also an accurate statement.
As I write these words, I am a living example.
My brother and brother-in-law play together on the same team in a local dart league. So, whenever we spend family time together with them — throwing darts is often what we do.
The only time I throw darts is when I am with them and I have to borrow their darts to be able to join in.
This year I put a dart set on my christmas wish list and I was gifted with a set of darts.
Now I am working on where can I setup a dartboard in my home!
My wife and I live in a relatively small place.
The challenge is to find a place with the proper height for the dartboard and the proper throwing distance, without fear of damaging the darts or other things in our home.
As I am doing this I started to think about how much planning I do for my own life!
- How much planning goes into the goals I say that I want?
- What is it that I want to accomplish in my life?
- What would I like my life to look like?
I have to admit that I do not give as much attention to these thoughts as they deserve.
That thought in itself is rather convicting.
This is a neat living example of spending more time planning for a dartboard then planning for my own life.
What about you, do you find yourself spending more time and effort planning a weekend trip or some other project than you do planning your own life?
Just something to think about.
