Aaron Sorkin wrote that line for WESTWING and I will never forget it.
I love this time of year. It causes everyone to take at least a minute to STOP and THINK.
- Am I getting too old?
- Am I going too fast?
- Am I working too hard?
- Am I trying to scheme to get the next gig?
- Am I really living in the now moment?
“I have come to believe in so many strange things over the years. I have had many ‘wow’ experiences, and because of that, I have very little reason to doubt that there is truth about things that are beyond what I can see or predict.”
Intention and a vision in a future, you cannot see, is where the fun is. The past has its moments, and sometimes they are really great. But that is not a reason to look back all the time. Looking through the rearview mirror causes you to bump into things. The only thing the past can do, is to help you make a prediction based on old facts. But what about the things you didn’t predict?
Imagination is funny. It allows you to dream of things that have not yet happened. I like that. I can put a lot of faith in that. Experience is all that teaches…words never teach. Let’s have a New Year of Intention, Consciousness, and Vision. That is what I wish for you all. Mark my words, and you will see that 2019 will be FANTASTIC when you commit to the Imagination.
This will be a year of things you thought could never happen, things you doubted, things you were limited to because of some statistic. Instead, let your imagination run wild. Happy Holidays.
