7 Habits for The Good Life (7)

Last, but certainly not least–


I don’t mean sleep a lot. I don’t mean daydream during important classes or meetings. I mean dream as in setting goals and planning toward those goals. Plan toward your dream. Execute your plan. Work hard. Study hard. Figure out what it takes to accomplish your dream, then do it.

If you need guidance, ask people who are already doing what you want to do. Read books from the best in that field. Learn from them. And if nobody in the whole wide world is doing exactly what it is you want to do, or they aren’t creating exactly what it is you want to create, then do the research and connect the dots and find a way to make it happen. Hope for the best; plan for the worst. Keep the big picture in mind, but pay attention to the details. Work at it. Be patient. Persevere. Do everything to the best of your ability and pray that the efforts go further than you could ever hope or dream. Soon, dreams will be coming true in small ways, and who knows, maybe you’ll start to see them come true in big ways.

DREAM. And in the meantime, do a kind deed everyday. Go out of your way to do something kind. Hold a door for someone behind you, pick up an item for someone who dropped something, call a friend, visit a grandparent or relative, wash the dishes for your wife or roommate, pay for someone’s meal. People will remember it. You’ll remember it. And when dreams start coming true, keep up the habit of kindness. People will remember you.

So there it is…7-ish habits for The Good Life. Practice them. Do them so often they become second nature. Peace be upon you.
