“At the end of our life we all ask, “Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?” Brendon Burchard
Do you find the plethora of “life’s axioms” or suggestions for “living a life that matters” becoming just a bit tiring? For me, there comes a point where the last thing I want is advice.
Executive Coach or Partner in Thought
For the last a couple decades I have found my coaching process has become more one of making suggestions for consideration, than a litany of advice regarding next steps. I guess that is one reason I changed my title from Executive Coach to Partner in Thought.
Perhaps that is also why I am so fond of Brendon Burchard’s three questions: Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter? His questions are so simple yet so powerful they really don’t require a lot of writing. But they do demand consideration.
Cling to the Simple
I guess I like them because of the simplicity. I can do these actions every single day. They do not require some sort of program to follow like my daily routines (which I continue to treasure dearly).
No, these ideas are merely another window to view the Joy of Living. For, every time I truly live or love or contribute to another in a way that really matters, I am most contented.
What about you?
Live, Love, Matter
What Else is There?
