Following a 3-2-1 approach, it contains 3 thoughts from me, 2 quotes from others, and 1 joke that’s so bad, it’s good!
Life get’s the easier the higher we fly. The air is thinner so we meet less resistance. There’s a reason we want to climb higher. That’s fine.
Just don’t be fooled into thinking that the level above you will solve all your problems. It never will. And don’t forget to look down and remember where you came from.
To be grateful for the current view out of your window.
Remove “I have to” from your vocabulary. There are very few things you actually have to do. Use the words “I get to” instead.
I get to take the kids to school. I get to work out today. I get to cook dinner.
It’s a small shift that makes a massive difference.
The point of having a destination is to give you direction. But also release you from the future, so you can concentrate on the present. So you can enjoy the journey.
If you pay close attention to the steps you’re taking today, the destination will take care of itself.
“I am the wisest man alive, for I know― Socrates
one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

Why was six afraid of seven?
Because seven eight nine.
