What are you trying to accomplish in your life?

On June 27, I discussed the subject of "who are you VS what do you do". I realize that there is an even more important (and confusing) question: what are you trying to accomplish in your life?

Hang on, stay with me on this one.

I know what you're thinking, "What a stupid question! Honestly, who asks questions like that in their life?" So let's take a step back and simplify the question a bit : What are you trying to accomplish this year? This month? Today?

Have you asked yourself that question? It's a tough one to answer, isn't it? And that's the whole point because it shouldn't. Life is made of unexpected things and it is up to you to let yourself be led by the flow. But if you don't know where you're going, you may drift around.

If you're okay with it, that's fine. But that's not what the book "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying" teaches us! One of the biggest regrets of the dying is that they regret, not the things they did, but the things they didn't do.

I ask myself that question several times a week. Certainly, I'm obviously an extreme. But I recommend that you do the exercise at least once. Take a piece of paper and write big "what am I trying to accomplish this year?"

Make yourself comfortable, have a glass of wine if you need it and put on some good music. You can even do it as a couple! The words won't come out easily at first, so don't panic. You'll see that later it will come out by itself!

Then classify what you want to achieve by large groups: family, health, sport, work, travel, friendship, etc. Try to prioritize 3 groups and prioritize 3 challenges within them. Why only 3 things? Because remember: "Dream big, start small."

Now that you have the 9 things you want to accomplish, try to make them measurable and display them in your bedroom (or a place to see them every day).

And then what?


ONE TEXT TO READ

“L’incapacité, ou plutôt la non-disposition du mental humain à lâcher le passé est parfaitement illustrée dans l’histoire des deux moines zen, Tanzan et Ekido, qui marchaient sur une route de campagne devenue extrêmement boueuse après des pluies torrentielles. Près d’un village, ils croisèrent une jeune femme qui tentait de traverser la route. La boue était si profonde qu’elle aurait abîmé le kimono de soie qu’elle portait. Tanzan la prit sur ses épaules d’un coup et la transporta de l’autre côté de la route. Puis les moines reprirent leur route en silence. Cinq heures plus tard, alors qu’ils approchaient du temple où ils allaient loger, Ekido ne put se contenir plus longtemps. « Pourquoi as-tu porté cette femme ? » demanda-t-il. « Nous sommes des moines. Nous ne sommes pas censés faire des choses pareilles. » « Je me suis délesté de la femme en question il y a des heures, lui répondit Tanzan, mais toi tu la portes encore, il me semble. »

Since you can scan a QRcode from your iPhone using just your camera, everything has changed. We see more and more QRcode blooming everywhere, and people are using them (which was not the case before).

TAP'D has decided to take it to the next level by offering NFC. To be honest, I think it's a really cool idea!
