What do you want out of life?

I went to a funeral the other day, so I'm afraid the next few letters are going to be a bit more reflective than usual. (By the way, these letters are written in advance, so by the time you read this, the funeral will probably gave been a few weeks ago)

Eric was my dad's best friend, but his family and my family were almost as one.

I thought I was OK, but during the funeral I met a load of people I hadn't seen in years and it made me realise what I had been missing out on. It made me realise I'd been spending too long on work and not long enough on everything else.

Then I did a Planning Session with a business coach - which prompted me to write out what I like and dislike about what I do. That was a bit of an eye-opener, to say the least, and I'll have more to say on that this week.

Take action: Grab a bit of paper and write out which of your tasks you like and dislike, love and hate.
