The World I Plan to End

The end of the world is happening tomorrow.  It’s real.  Thanks Mayans.  What are you going to do about it?

The world that I plan to end is the world where I have ideas about things I’m going to do instead of the results of things I did.

The world that I plan to end is the world where I feel like it might be career suicide to say that I won’t come to a 8A meeting unless it’s dire urgent, because I want to have the ability to see my kids in the morning.

The world that I plan to end is the world where I acquire more things than I retire/sell/donate.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I have allowed to lapse the fact that I brought my wife flowers on my way home from work every Friday.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I continue to perpetrate white collar crimes of humanity on my garage, and instead actually learn how to build what I really want out there.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I watch re-runs of certain TV shows over and over again.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I don’t fully utilize my vacation time each year.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I dwell on the near misses of greatness in my career, or on the amazing trajectories of the careers of people I know.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I first seek to be understood, instead of seeking to understand.

The world that I plan to end is the one where I stand on the sidelines during a the public discussion of a major public policy issue.

What will you end in your world tomorrow?
