A few years ago I asked a friend who had recently exited prison what he was going to do next.
“I don’t know,” he responded, “I am starting with a blank sheet of paper.”
I found his response exciting. Those few words were full of possibilities and potential.
The world was his oyster.
It was an opportunity to feel alive and restart his journey.
We may take early retirement, and some of us take up gardening and cooking. We fail to remember life is a game of two halves.
Giving up the chase half-way through the journey is giving up on life. Throwing the towel in. You are saying to yourself the best days are over.
Don’t let your past hold you back.
If you are a control freak and look for certainty in every aspect of your life, you are unlikely to thrive and take risks.
Remember this when you start your journey in 2024.
